Thousands of homes across Hull could benefit from a new £60 million scheme to improve energy efficiency.

The new Green Deal programme will see refurbishment works on homes in the Preston Road and Orchard Park areas of Hull. Improved wall insulation will be fitted to buildings as well as draught-proofing, double-glazing and renewable energy generation such as solar panels or heat pumps.

The aim of the scheme is to improve social housing stock and cut the amount of energy needed to heat homes, therefore lowering annual gas and electricity bills for stretched households.

Hull City Council has gone into partnership with energy firm Willmott Dixon Energy Services to deliver the scheme, which will see over 3,000 homes improved over the coming years.

Councillor Martin Mancey, portfolio holder for energy city, said the deal would allow residents’ money to go further as well as improve living conditions.

The council said residents living the affected areas will be sent letters advising them of the improvements programme in the next few months.
