Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES)

The Dorset Council MEES team have recently said It is the Councils opinion that Listed Buildings are not automatically exempt from the need to obtain an EPC for renting purposes. Buildings protected as part of a designated environment or because of their special architectural or historical merit are exempt from the requirements to have an energy performance certificate insofar as compliance with minimum energy performance requirements would unacceptably alter their character or appearance. Therefore only once an EPC is obtained and the recommended works identified can the property be properly exempted.
