Energy & Warmth

The average UK household wastes around £300 per year due to energy inefficiency. Due to climate change, it is predicted that by the end of the century the world's temperature will have risen by 2-5 degrees and sea levels by 30-50cm.

Stratford-on-Avon District Council is committed to alleviating fuel poverty and ensuring that affordable warmth is available to everyone. By working in partnership with other councils and organisations, we are able to contribute to South Warwickshire's affordable warmth strategy.

A new scheme called ECO: Help to Heat Programme is now available to Stratford residents. If you are below the average income for Warwickshire (approximately £27,000) and meet other criteria, you may be entitled to help with a new boiler (including off-gas), loft insulation and cavity wall insulation. Please see the Statement of Intent for more information and then contact Act on Energy to apply.

Under section 4 of the Home Energy Conservation Act 1995 (HECA), local authorities are required to report on efforts being made to achieve energy conservation within their area. Our HECA report for 2017 provides further information on our progress.

To find out how you can save energy in your home, please contact Act on Energy or Citizens Advice.
