It may sometimes be appropriate to allow upgrading works which present a small risk of technical incompatibility if the energy efficiency benefits are significant, but only where the new work and any old work it may affect can be adequately monitored for long-term deterioration.

STAGE TWO Stage two upgrading works might be considered once stage one works have been explored or implemented. The areas likely to be relevant are solid elements of the external envelope, particularly masonry or brick walls.
