Arun District Council, West Sussex

District council brings energy efficiency throughout its operations

< 1/3 >

Mr Gerry Yorke in front of his property in Littlehampton, Arun council have given him a grant to help heat his house as part of their carbon reduction scheme in the borough.

Arun District Council has improved energy efficiency in its own estate (using extensive metering, and behavioural campaigns in partnership with the trade union); in council housing (through a continuing upgrade policy that has reached 99% of homes); in houses with multiple occupants (through support to landlords and liaison with student groups); and in religious organisations (through the Ecofaith group). Specific council policies and the Arun Carbon Management Action Plan have led and coordinated this work.
