Making our housing stock more energy efficient

Energy and water efficiency improvements to local authority housing are an ongoing programme of works. We spend approximately £50,000 per year on loft and cavity-wall insulation measures, and £100,000 on external wall insulation. Repairing and replacing heating services with energy efficient systems accounts for more than £1 million of spending per year.

As part of this work there is a commitment to ensure all refurbishment work installs water efficient technology wherever possible. We give energy performance certificates to all new tenants, and can provide further advice when necessary.

The Asset Management Plan outlines our current commitments in relation to the maintenance of local authority properties.  Improvement to the energy efficiency of local authority owned properties has been identified as an investment priority.
