planning and heat pumps

Expert Posts: 253 Join Date: 07/12/11 Recent Posts

Morning all,

I've been asked how much of an issue the planning system is for people wanting to fit heat pumps. I know they are PD, but some of you may hear via BC or otherwise whether they cause complaints / problems for noise or similar?

I think this forms part of a "deep retrofit" study that asks "which bits of the planning system might frustrate decarbonising existing housing stock?" which is a good question to ponder. Any thoughts / advice / opinions welcome.
