I am having trouble getting a house with a traditional stone fireplace to pass as the unsealed chimney has a significantly negative impact on the star rating.

Open fireplaces are inefficient and the draft they create makes the infiltration rate very high. Consult the client/designer; they may consider a model/flue with an in-build damper so that it could be considered a sealed flue.
