    Abstract

    This report aims to discover whether UK property developers are able to cope with the demands of the Code for Sustainable Homes and the associated Building Regulations Part L standards. This study also aims to examine the feasibility of meeting the zero carbon homes target by 2016. It will assess the impact of government policies and regulations, such as the Code for Sustainable Homes, on residential property construction practices and examine the impact on the financial return on residential developments built to comply with current requirements of the Code for Sustainable Homes. It will also seek to compare findings from financial returns of non energy efficient dwellings with the financial return from energy efficient dwellings and investigate the key barriers and incentives to the development of zero carbon dwellings.
