PPS 7 (Addendum): Residential Extensions and Alterations
Sustainable Design

2.5 In promoting good design for residential alterations and extensions, the Department will encourage proposals which incorporate features intended to maximise sustainability and energy efficiency, including the use of renewable energy sources, such as solar panels. The Department would draw attention to a number of best practice guides on this matter that can assist property owners and their professional advisors in preparing proposals for extending or altering a residential property. For example, Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM), Eco-Homes: the environmental rating for homes (BRE) and Civil Engineering Environmental Quality Assessment (CEEQUAL).
