  • Asked by: Miles Briggs, MSP for Lothian, Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party
  • Date lodged: 15 November 2022
  • Current status: Answered by Patrick Harvie on 23 November 2022


To ask the Scottish Government what further clarity it has provided regarding the New Build Heat Standard and potential ban on building new homes with gas boilers from 2024.


We recently completed our second consultation on the New Build Heat Standard , which sets out our proposals for regulating direct emissions heating systems within new buildings, applying for a building warrant, from 1 April 2024.

An independent analysis of the responses received to the consultation is now underway, and this will inform the development of regulations prior to their laying in Parliament in Spring 2023.
