Minutes:

The Executive Member considered a report which advised of the successful outcome of the area based home insulation scheme and the potential funding opportunities through the Community Energy Saving Programme to extend the scheme. Significant work is being undertaken by Leeds City Region on the Domestic Energy Efficiency Programme (DEEP) which if successful will have a positive impact on any future area based insulation work undertaken by the Council.

 

Officers outlined the report and highlighted the following points:

  • 600 homes had work carried out.
  • Financial benefit to householders.
  • The scheme assists with the Councils CO2 strategies.
  • DEEP programme includes York as part of the Leeds City Region.
  • There are more benefits for York not highlighted in the report that will be reported at a later date.
