CSH - specification

Code for sustainable homes logoThe Department for Communities and Local Government (CLG) launched the Code for Sustainable Homes in 2006 as a new national standard for sustainable design and construction of new homes. Since May 2008 the developer of any new home in England must have a mandatory rating against the Code.  All social housing projects funded by the Housing Corporation are required to work to at least Code for Sustainable Homes (CSH) level 3.
