Further Warm Homes Funding- Shropshire Council led project

This report seeks approval for the council to participate in an extension to the current Warm Homes Fund project which will support an additional 200 plus fuel poor households in Herefordshire to access funding for first time central heating systems and energy advice through the project.

 

The original decision, made in December 2018, can be found here and approved the proposals for Herefordshire to act as accountable body and add the relevant funding to the capital programme, define eligibility as per 3 and 4 below and for the Acting Assistant Director for Regulatory, Environment and Waste Services to take operational decisions necessary to implement the project.

 

As the additional funding offer requires a change to the current delivery model, this report also seeks authority to vary our current agreement with the Warm Homes Fund and to establish a collaborative governance structure with Shropshire Council who will act as the accountable body.
