Derbyshire Dales is working with partners to reduce fuel poverty, improve the energy efficiency of homes across the Dales and to help fight the effects of climate change. The District Council is part of the Derbyshire Dales and High Peak Affordable Warmth Partnership, and the Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire Local Authorities' Energy Partnership, which help to ensure that we work effectively towards our goals.
The ways in which householders can get assistance to improve the energy efficiency of their homes is changing. The Government Grant called Warm Front and the District Council endorsed Warmstreets scheme have both now ended and been replaced by a new programme called The Green Deal and the Energy Company Obligation. We are now working with partners throughout Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire to produce a scheme that we can be sure will benefit our residents. When this scheme is ready we will publicise it throughout the District.
