Consultation: Have your say on the draft Fuel Poverty Strategy

The Council is asking for views on its draft Fuel Poverty Strategy and Action Plan.

A household is in fuel poverty if the residents are on a low income and are unable to heat their home for a reasonable cost.

The draft strategy sets out the Council's aim, objectives and proposed actions to tackle fuel poverty in the social, private rented and owner-occupied residential sectors.

Fuel Poverty Strategy Questions

Q1Do you feel our draft Fuel Poverty Strategy complements local and national priorities?
Q2Do you agree that these are the most appropriate groups to target?

Low income, vulnerable residents that are living in homes rated below EPC Band C will be targeted.

Based on information from the new Fuel Poverty Strategy for England, we consider the following low-income households to be particularly vulnerable if at least one member of the household is:

•65 or older.

•Younger than school age.

•Living with a long-term health condition which makes them more likely to spend most of their time at home, such as mobility conditions which further reduce ability to stay warm.

•Living with a long-term health condition which puts them at higher risk of experiencing cold-related illness – for example, a health condition which affects their breathing, heart or mental health.
