The Alliance gave evidence on retrofitting Scotland’s existing homes to the Scottish Parliament’s Local Government, Housing and Planning Committee on 25th November 2021.
As the Scottish Government develops the regulatory, delivery and financial framework needed to take the Heat in Buildings Strategy forward, we believe it must be focused on:
- Giving clear signals to homeowners and landlords about what they need to do by when to meet mandatory standards that will deliver warm, green and healthy homes.
- Expanding advice and support services to ensure clear and appealing customer journeys for homeowners (including private landlords).
- Targeting public investment to leverage private finance, deliver a just transition and ensure costs are met in full for people in fuel poverty.
- Monitoring outcomes of policy interventions to ensure sufficient progress is being made towards meeting climate change and fuel poverty targets.
