Point 3 - Whilst it is encouraging to see Code for Sustainable Homes levels 4 and above for residential developments, a phased approach would be more suitable (i.e. by 2015 all new developments greater than 10 dwellings to be Level 4, beyond 2015 all new developments must meet level 5/6). If North Somerset is striving to achieve zero carbon for new homes by 2016, then the policy of Code 4 homes for greater than 10 dwellings will become obsolete by 2016.
