We have previously drawn ARCH member councils' attention to the
Government's £50m Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund
The Department of Business, Enterprise & Industrial Strategy
(BEIS) is now looking for local authorities to take part in
research on energy efficiency improvements to social housing and
social housing retrofit.
The research project will seek to understand the current state
of the social housing stock in England, as well as how, when and
why social housing landlords make energy efficient improvements to
their properties. BEIS also wants to understand how tenants
are engaging with social housing retrofit.
Councils taking part in this research will have the opportunity
to share their views on retrofit and say how any future funding
through the SHDF would best benefit both landlords and tenants.
We will be writing to the lead officers at each of our member
councils with more details of the research and would encourage all
ARCH member councils to take part.
Any ARCH member council interested in taking part in this
research should contact ARCH Chief Executive John Bibby (firstname.lastname@example.org
) with the name and contact details of the council's lead officer.
