Decision details

Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) in respect of Green Homes Grant Local Authority Delivery (GHG LAD) phase 1a project.

Decision Maker: Assistant Director for Regulatory, Environment and Waste Services

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No

Purpose:

Fuel Poverty affects an estimated 10,682 households in the county (12.9%). This figure is higher than the national level of 10.3% and reflects the challenges that the county faces in relation to the energy efficiency of properties including a large proportion of older, hard to treat ‘solid wall’ properties and restricted access to mains gas due and therefore expensive heating fuel systems due to the rural nature of the county.

The fund, administered by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) is allocating funding to be used to improve the energy efficiency of low-income houses living in Herefordshire and Shropshire as well as supporting the green recovery in response to Covid-19.

The project will allow an estimated 100 Herefordshire and Shropshire households to access fully funded renewable Air Source Heat Pump (ASHP) systems/Solid Wall Insulation (SWI) and/or energy efficient glazing and doors.
