Energy & Warmth

The Private Sector Housing Team (PSHT) at Stratford on Avon District Council will be adhering to, and following current Government guidelines in respect of the Coronavirus pandemic. Social Distancing is paramount during this difficult period and as a precaution to both staff and customers alike, home visits are highly unlikely to be undertaken for the foreseeable future. The PSHT will be working from home and calling into the office when possible, please do not hesitate to contact them by telephone on 01789 260848 or email We thank you for your understanding during these worrying times.

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 affordable warmth in South Warwickshire.

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.
