Warm homes fit for the future

We’re investing in your homes to make sure they’re warm, safe, comfortable and fit for the future.

Our Capital Investment Programme for 2023/24 is delivering an ambitious scope of improvements across our housing stock, bringing lots of benefits to you and the environment. This demonstrates our commitment to provide you with decent homes, which are more efficient and will help to reduce your energy bills.

Overall, the programme aims to deliver improvements to over 1,000 properties, replacing where necessary:

  • boilers
  • energy efficient LEDs
  • loft insulation
  • cavity wall
  • external wall insulation
  • PVCu doors and windows.

Pictured are Amanda Garrard our Chief Executive and Arturo Gulla, Executive Director of Property Services at a recent site visit where we’re carrying out retrofit works to 70 council properties, as part of the government’s Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund (SHDF) scheme.
