    This thread discusses the Content article: New Homes Don't Meet Energy Standards

    So, what would be the required standard for homes with planning approval before April 2006, but completed after April 2006.
    I have a Bloor home which falls in this category. The heating insulation is poor.
    I would like to know what the standard requirement is and also the SAP rating if applicable etc

    The applicable standards are the ones that were in force when the property was granted planning permission.

    I don't unfortunately, but it would be a reasonable question for you to ask the developer

    Not much point of posting then is there?

    New homes even if they are designed to be energy efficient have been known to have missing or no cavity insulation and some even have no roof insulation either!
