Chancellor Rishi Sunak has unveiled the Autumn Budget 2021 and Spending Review, and while there are some standout pledges to encourage homebuilding in the UK, the government’s plans have received criticism for not going far enough towards greening up our homes.  

Mr Sunak’s Budget Wednesday statement, delivered just days before the COP26 climate summit, comprised key announcements from the Autumn Budget (Budgets are normally carried out once or twice a year) and the Spending Review (carried out roughly once every three years).
