Simplified guidelines for fitting double glazing in Colonies homes

In response to residents’ wish to reduce heat loss from their homes, the Residents’ Association has produced guidance to help anyone wishing to fit double or secondary glazing to their widows. The City of Edinburgh Council has approved this much simplified version of their guidelines.

Included with the text are templates for a Listed Building Consent (LBC) application form, and for sample cross-sections and elevation drawings of typical windows, as well as a location plan. All these can be scanned and attached to the LBC application form.

Here is the approved guidance document: Colonies windows guidelines November 2023
