To raise the energy efficiency rating of the homes of low income and low EPC rated households with the aim of improving homes towards EPC C and above. This should save households money while keeping warm; cut carbon emissions; and create green jobs.


To fully approve capital amounting to £716k for the Affordable Warmth Grant Scheme which will be funded by Green Homes Grant – Local Authority Delivery (£676k) and Affordable Warmth Grant (£40k).

Alternative options considered:

We could have chosen not to apply for the grant, however the funding will improve homes occupied by low income households with increased insulation and/or low carbon heating.
