Gloucestershire MP proposes building changes
By Rob Freeman | 3rd July 2020
Cotswold MP Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown has introduced a private members bill into the House of Commons which could revolutionise the planning process and house building.
The bill proposes all new build houses must have full fibre broadband connections, electric vehicle charging infrastructure and improved energy efficiency through increased standards for insulation.
Mr Clifton-Brown said: "I think it is shocking to read accounts of people living in new homes who report that they are cold and draughty.
"This bill is an opportunity to make sure all new builds are well insulated and also equipped for modern living by being connected to full fibre broadband and by having electric car charging points."
He continued: "I was delighted to be selected for a private members bill in a random ballot of all MPs, and I could think of nothing better than bringing forward a proposal which will future proof our homes and simultaneously help with the climate emergency and the pressing subject of climate change."
