Question weight


Two Tier Criteria
Criteria met if the council has carried out 1-100 compliance or enforcement notices in the last financial year 2021/22.
Additional points if more than 100 compliance or enforcement notices have been carried out by a council.


This question is applicable to English and Welsh District and Single tier councils only.

All district and single tier councils have legal powers to enforce Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards. This legislation states that a home cannot be rented out by a landlord if the home has an EPC rating of E or lower. The council can enforce this requirement through enforcement notices and fining landlords if they continue to rent out homes that have an EPC rating of E or lower.
