In the Government's British Energy Security Strategy, published earlier this year, we committed to reviewing the practical planning barriers that households can face when installing energy efficiency measures, including in conservation areas and listed buildings. My department has been working on the review jointly with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport and the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy and will make an announcement on the outcomes in due course.
