Acceptance of Sustainable Warmth Grant funding

Decision Maker: Executive Member for Public Health, Prevention and Supported Housing, including Sustainability and Transformation Plans

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: No

Purpose:

To seek approval to accept the Sustainable Warmth Grant funding following a successful bid.

Decision:

Approval has been given to accept funding from the sustainable warmth competition that will support residents living in fuel poverty across Scarborough, Ryedale and Hambleton.

Reasons for the decision:

Sustainable Warmth is a Government competition launched to bring together two fuel poverty schemes into a single funding opportunity for Local Authorities. The funding will provide upgrades to low-income households living both on and off the gas grid to tackle fuel poverty and contribute towards net zero targets. It will help some of the least efficient homes become more energy efficient and cheaper to heat with low-carbon energy. These upgrades aim to create warmer homes at lower cost, and will support low-income families with the switch to low-carbon heating, ensuring fuel poor households are not left behind in the transition to net zero.
