88 Eastwood Homes To Benefit From Decarbonisation Funding
The Council submitted a bid as part of a consortium led by the Midland Net Zero Hub.
The fund will help the Council to tackle the difficult challenge of retrofitting properties within one of the Borough’s conservation areas, whilst also reducing fuel poverty.
Improvements will vary from property to property and measures will include:
- External wall insulation
- Internal wall insulation
- Loft insulation
- Floor insulation
- Low energy lighting
Tenants whose property will benefit from improvements will be notified by the Council directly.
Leader of the Council, Milan Radulovic MBE said, ‘I’m delighted to hear the news that Broxtowe has been successful in its bid for the Decarbonisation Fund. This will help address much needed improvements to properties in Eastwood, helping us tackle the Climate Change crisis as well as improving the energy efficiency of these homes which residents will feel the benefit of.’’
In July 2019, the Council declared a 'Climate Change Emergency' and committed to becoming carbon neutral by 2027 for its own operations.
A Climate Change and Green Futures Delivery Programme was developed to allow us to act now and deliver an effective strategy to reduce the Council’s carbon footprint. The current programme outlines how we will influence, encourage and assist the local community to strive towards the same goal.
The Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund (SHDF) is a 2019 Conservative Manifesto commitment of £3.8bn over a 10-year period to improve the energy performance of social rented homes, on the pathway to Net Zero 2050. The SHDF will upgrade a significant amount of the social housing stock currently below EPC C up to that standard, delivering warm, energy-efficient homes, reducing carbon emissions and fuel bills, tackling fuel poverty, and supporting green jobs.
Residents can find advice and support on energy saving and the cost of living crisis on the Council’s website at www.broxtowe.gov.uk/costofliving
