What is a Code for Sustainable Homes (or CSH) statement?

<h1>What is a Code for Sustainable Homes (or CSH) statement?</h1>

<p>The Code for Sustainable Homes (CSH) is a scheme which planning authorities in England and Wales have been allowed to request on new developments since 2007.</p>

<p>It was never adopted in Scotland, has since been scrapped in Wales, and is currently being phased out in England. Only existing planning conditions should need to complete the Code for Sustainable Homes (CSH) requirements.</p>

<p>&nbsp;</p>

<p>If you have an outstanding Code for Sustainable Homes (CSH) requirement, and you haven&rsquo;t done anything about it yet, we strongly recommend you contact us.</p>

<p>Code for Sustainable Homes (CSH) requires you to meet specific levels in energy efficiency, water use, site management and surface water run-off to name but a few.</p>

<p>You need to back up each and every point with sufficient evidence from specialist suppliers or environmental experts.</p>

<p>It is extremely difficult to achieve CSH compliance unless you have an idea of what&rsquo;s required right from Day One.</p>

<p>Don&rsquo;t bury your head in the sand, as that&rsquo;s likely to cost you a lot more in the long run. Contact our Code for Sustainable Homes (CSH) team for advice on your next steps.</p>
