Dear Oaklands College,

As part of the Climate Change Agenda following COP26 we are compiling a list of Organisations who do not comply with current legal requirements under The Energy Performance of Buildings Regulations (England and Wales).

You have been noted [potentially defamatory material removed], specifically in respect of buildings containing air conditioning. Part 4 Inspection of Air Conditioning Inspections of the EPB refers.

Questions;

1. Were you aware of the Regulation?
2. Provide a time-scale in which you intend to comply? We will check for your compliance certificate on the open government database:
Find energy certificates and reports by postcode – Find an energy certificate – GOV.UK (communities.gov.uk).
3. If you do not intend to comply, why not?
4. Who is the Responsible Person at your Organisation?
5. Do you have a Sustainability Plan or Carbon Reduction Programme?

Yours faithfully,

Rebecca Harrison

Dear Rebecca Harrison,

 

 

FOI Request RE: Climate Change Agenda following COP26

 

 

I am writing to acknowledge that your Freedom of Information request has
been raised with the Interim Director of Estates and we can confirm that:

 

Yes, the College is aware of the Regulations.

We have a large number of buildings of which many are very poorly rated
and have been rated the same for many years with no change.

 

The College acknowledges that it has and our ageing estate and  is poorly
rated. However, the College is undergoing a £60 million pound
redevelopment of its campus where sustainability is incorporated in the
building plans. The college is 2 years into this development with 3-4
years remaining.

 

 

Thank you for taking the time to contact us.

 

Kind regards,

Quality
