Building Regs Part L changes 2021-22

Building Regulations Part L changes, publication and implementation in 2021-22


At Building Regs 4 Plans, we’ve been preparing for the latest changes to the new Part L, set to apply from June (2022). The Government published the Future Buildings Standards consultation document in January 2021.
Contained within this document were the interim Part L, Part F and Overheating Regulations for domestic and non-domestic buildings, and the first steps towards the aim to deliver Zero Carbon Ready homes by 2025.

From June 2022, all new homes will be expected to produce 31% less CO2 emissions than is acceptable in the current Part L.

New Proposals

The new proposals include such upgrades as:

  • Waste water heating recovery to ALL showers
  • Heating systems flow temperature to be NO more than 55° C
  • Photovoltaics – proportional to the ground floor area (e.g. 50m² GFA will require 3kW peak solar panels equal to approx. 18m² [assumed to SE/SW orientation])
  • Thermal elements U Values of:
    • Walls 0.18
    • Windows 1.2
    • Floor 0.13
    • Roof 0.11

The proposals will also encourage the installation of ground source heat pumps which will allow solar panels to be removed from the design and enable greater flexibility in the specified U-Values of the individual thermal elements.

Publication and Implementation

The new Part L was published in December 2021 with an implementation date of June 2022. Developers must submit their Building Notices, Initial Notices or deposit their Full Plans application by June 2022 or comply with the new regulations set out in Approved Document L 2021.

Continuing to register with our site will mean you will always be up-to-date with latest the changes and can easily succeed in achieving building regulations approval. Our unique and easy to use system allows you to draft and submit compliant specifications with the corresponding detail drawings, leading to a finished project in line with the latest Government legislation.

Transitional arrangements

The Amendment Regulations and accompanying Approved Documents L: Volumes 1 and 2 come into force on 15 June 2022. However, the changes will not apply in relation to building work where a building notice or an initial notice has been given to, or full plans deposited with, a local authority before 15 June 2022 provided that the building work is started before 15 June 2023.
