Code for Sustainable Homes (CfSH)

What is the Code for Sustainable Homes (CfSH or sometimes abbreviated to just ‘Code’)?

Code for Sustainable Homes (CfSH) is an environmental assessment system for rating new build dwellings.

Why and when do I need to do a CfSH assessment?

You will need a CfSH assessment if you are working on new housing that is funded by the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA), or on any new dwelling that is supported/promoted by the Welsh Assembly Government.

Some but not all local authorities also require CfSH standards to be met as a condition of planning approval.

What you need to know

You need to contact a CfSH assessor early. CSH have rating levels which range from 1 to 6. There are mandatory minimum requirements for some areas.

HRS have a team of CfSH Assessors who will work closely with you to ensure you achieve your desired rating.
