Each Home Counts Review Newsletter 24th February 2017

Hello!                

The Workstream Leads are busy carrying on the momentum following launch of the Review. They have been engaging with a range of stakeholders to develop implementation plans in time for a workshop proposed in Spring. The Review Team has been in contact with manufacturers, trade bodies and other interested groups to hear views on the Report and to explain how they can be involved. We have a meeting planned next week with Cornwall County Council to talk about the pilot announced at the launch event.

Meeting with Baxi
Peter Bonfield had a productive meeting with the CEO and top team at Baxi, a manufacturer of domestic and commercial water and space heating systems. We are pleased that Baxi have expressed their support for a quality mark and look forward to working with them through participation in our working groups.
Traditional Buildings and the Each Home Counts Review
Peter and James also attended the Sustainable and Traditional Buildings Alliance’s Advisory Group Meeting to listen to their comments about the Review. The STBA is a collaboration of not for profit organisations that acts as a forum for sustaining and improving traditional buildings in the UK. Traditional buildings make up a large proportion of the UK’s housing stock and it was helpful to hear a range of views about how the Review can address some unique challenges. We will be working with representatives in this sector to explore how we can embed their knowledge and skills in the Review as we take the recommendations forward.
