Improvements to cold homes will help keep energy bills down

HARLOW Council has completed a programme of external makeovers to over 300 Council homes in order to make them warmer.

Between March and November 2013, the external walls of 302 Council homes were insulated and covered with new render to help reduce heat loss. The finishing touches were put in place last week just in time for winter.

This programme was jointly funded by £1.5 million from Scottish and Southern Energy Solutions and £740,000 from Harlow Council.

Councillor Rod Truan, Portfolio Holder for Housing, said: “The warm and modern homes programme has been successfully completed and we have been receiving very positive feedback from tenants as the cold weather has come in.

“This is all part of our wider programme to modernise Council homes and change people’s lives. The Council homes selected for this programme were some of the coldest in the town. The work will help keep energy bills down which will make a big difference to tenants living in these homes.”

The homes which took part in the scheme were from the following areas:
