    We are looking to start up a group in Cambridgeshire and have a volunteer group leader. You can find out more here. Use this area to chat about the new group.

    The Cambridge group seems to be fairly active. We have regular meetings on the last Tuesday of each month and we said we’d hopefully start using the forum a bit more now that the website has been updated.

    In that spirit I thought I’d share a link to this meeting for the Joint Local Planning Advisory Group

    Hi Andrew. Thanks for that. I wanted to go to that meeting but wasn’t able to so would be interested to hear if anyone made it along.

    As well as Local Planning Policy, at our last meetup we also started to discuss the upcoming changes to Part L of the building regs. You might not yet have seen that the Govt. have just released their consultation on this (and part F) FOR NEW BUILD HOMES, here: https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/the-future-homes-standard-changes-to-part-l-and-part-f-of-the-building-regulations-for-new-dwellings

    Clearly this is much better dealt with at a National level and by building regs not planning (because of building regs inspections & sign off). Haven’t had a chance to read it yet but we have until 10th of Jan to respond.

    Lots for us to discuss when we next meet (7pm, October 22nd @ the Alex pub, Cambridge).

    Cheers, Olly

    Thanks Olly for the link and the slightly different meeting date this month (due to a clash with the Passivhaus Conference).

    It would be good if the AECB can put together a response – interesting in the BD suggesting that local plans would not be able to stipulate higher standards.
