Update on Low Carbon Housing Retrofit Programme
The Principal Strategic Housing and Investment Officer introduced a report which set out the scale and challenge of carrying out low carbon housing retrofit of Wirral’s housing stock. Low carbon housing retrofit supports at least three aims of the Wirral Plan 2021-26:
· Delivering regeneration, growth and transport ambitions;
· Creating jobs and supporting local businesses; and
· Responding to the Climate Change Emergency.
Members asked a number of questions on properties in conservation areas being made low carbon, publicity of the programme to landlords and costs involved.
Members thanked the Principal Strategic Housing and Investment Officer and the Housing Standards Manager for their reports and noted that they had been of excellent quality.
That the Committee noted the report and further offered its support to the current programme of work.
