CPRE Sussex director Paul Steedman said: “It is a no-brainer to go with the option which includes solar panels. Option one would protect residents from unnecessary rises in energy bills and cut fossil fuel consumption. Option two would mean higher energy bills for residents and increased carbon emissions.”

The Future Homes and Buildings Standards consultation closes on March 6.
