Improve your home Energy Efficiency

As your Council, we are committed to helping people keep warm and well in their homes.  It is with this in mind that we have agreed to work with Westville Insulation to ensure private householders in the Borough have the chance to improve the energy efficiency in their homes which will make the property feel warmer and reduce your fuel costs.

If you live in your own home or in a privately rented property you may be able to apply for free cavity wall insulation and free loft insulation.  To qualify for the free loft insulation your property must have less than 60mm existing insulation.

If you live in a solid wall property, you may be interested in solid wall insulation, which allows homes like yours to be thermally insulated to current building standards. It involves applying thermal insulation boards to your walls and then rendering it with a silicone render finish of your choice. There may be some funding available towards the cost of External Wall Insulation.
