Update on council housing retrofit plans: Winter 2022/23 rapid energy improvements programme and Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund Wave 2

Purpose of Report: Set out the proposed bid for Housing Revenue Account (HRH) stock energy efficiency retrofit projects for the Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund Wave 2 and for the winter 2022-23 programme of rapid intervention energy improvements or “quick wins” for HRA properties.

The Executive Member will be asked to decide the basis of the bid under Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund Wave 2 and to decide whether to undertake a programme of rapid energy improvement works utilising existing budgets.

The Council aims to give the same 28 days’ clear notice of non-key decisions as it does for key decisions, but in exceptional circumstances this may not be possible. It has not been possible to give 28 clear days’ notice of the intention to make this decision because of the deadline for submitting a grant application under the Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund.
