20/03/2023 - Adoption of the Environmental Building Standards SPD

The purpose of the EBS SPD is to drive up environmental standards of buildings in Herefordshire and set out recommendations to drive up higher, more efficient standards of building design and construction and will encourage the adoption of these by developers and householders. The SPD will supplement Local Plan policy and provides detail of how development can achieve higher quality buildings through design and higher quality materials, as well as greater use of renewable energy technology in buildings to ensure that it is fully aligned with our zero-carbon, nature-rich goals for Herefordshire. The SPD includes best practice recommendations for standards in key areas of building performance, energy use, external environment, accessibility, and construction. The guidance also includes best practice case study examples for high-quality sustainable design, use, and construction.
