    Posted By: djhThey'd also failed to recognize that they have an obligation to actually grant planning permission on self-build plots by Oct 30 this year to match the number of names in their self-build register, so I've reminded them of that and pointed out they are open to a legal challenge on it.


    I think they may have another year. I think the register opened in Oct 2016 so the first year of registration would be Oct 2016-2017. So I think they have until 30th Oct 2020 to grant requests made before Oct 2017?

    I don't think you're right. See https://www.gov.uk/guidance/self-build-and-custom-housebuilding#land-duties

    Thanks Tom, I broadly agree. I would like to 15 as a wide spread target. Thanks

    The law of diminishing returns is time bound and very much dependant on design life.

    As soon as retrofit insulation becomes necessary the whole thing literally blows itself out of the water

    Current new homes will need retrofitting with more insulation before 2050 which is crazy
