January 2023 – we have written to the APPG on Climate Change asking them to put pressure on the Government to publish the new EPC and MEES requirements for the PRS.
They also sent a copy of their request to Chris Skidmore MP, following the publication this week of his Net Zero Review
The letter can be seen here.
August 29th 2021 – We have written to the Business Secretary, Kwasi Kwateng, with reference to the outcome of their consultation on MEES. The letter can be seen here.
Update – October 4th 2021. We have received a reply which can be seen here. You will see that it is a very disappointing response, actually telling us nothing, and certainly not allowing us to advise members of what EPC rating they need to achieve, and when.
We have written the Alok Sharma in his role as Chair of COP26 to ask how landlords are supposed to contribute to the cause of COP26 in view of a lightweight, meaningless answer to a straight forward question. .You can see the letter here.
Update – April 2022. As we still have no positive response from the Government we have written again to the Business Secretary, Kwasi Kwateng, the letter can be seen here.
Update July 15th 2022, finally received an answer to our letter of April 2022 (above). The letter can be seen here, and as you can see, doesn’t tell us anything we didn’t know already. We will wait for the new cabinet and write again.
November 14th 2022 – we have written again to the (new) BEIS secretary, with a copy to the Levelling Secretary (Michael Gove) and Alok Sharma. It can be seen here.
