The Budget 2021 has been published and chancellor Rishi Sunak has unveiled key announcements for the housing sector, but there is a shared sense of disappointment that the Budget doesn’t go further towards helping homeowners make green home improvements.

There are very positive announcements in the form of the stamp duty holiday extension, and the Green Homes Grant (reported to be in line for the scrap this month) has not been referenced.
