York wins award for best Council in the Yorkshire and Humberside Energy Efficiency Awards

Back

The accolade was announced at an event in Sheffield in recognition of the council’s and Better Homes Yorkshire’s work to insulate the walls and lofts of 74 flats around Navigation Road in York.

The mixed tenure flats have an unusual construction which made identifying them as suitable for insulation difficult. They are also within a conservation area.

The work was carried out by Better Homes Yorkshire and was funded by the council together with grants from the West Yorkshire Combined Authority and the national ECO fund.

The Tackling Fuel Poverty scheme received £5.7 million from the Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (LEP), delivered in partnership with the West Yorkshire Combined Authority, through the Leeds City Region Growth Deal – a £1 billion package of Government investment to accelerate growth and create jobs across Leeds City Region.

Stephen Batty, Framework Director for Better Homes Yorkshire said: “We pride ourselves on the quality of contractor that we engage and this is recognition of how we have worked successfully on a tricky project to provide warmer more comfortable and cheaper to heat homes.”

Councillor Denise Craghill, Executive Member for Housing and Safer Neighbourhoods said: “It is clearly very important to us that residents of our own properties and those living in the private sector reduce their energy bills and keep themselves warm at home. This scheme is helping residents living in the heart of the City to do just that. Working with Better Homes Yorkshire and JNR helped us to solve issues as they arose and deliver positive outcomes for the residents.”
