Council tenants

External wall insulation – ECO (Energy Company Obligation) funding

Between 2013 and 2014, 68 council owned homes benefitted from external wall insulation (EWI) partly funded by ECO funding.

The external wall insulation made the home warmer and cheaper to heat as there is no heat loss through the walls and improves the energy efficiency rating of the property too. The insulation also alters the appearance of the property externally by giving the elevations a new coat of coloured render improving the overall street scene.

These works were carried out under the Eastern Procurement Ltd (EPL) contract with Foster property Maintenance and Cornerstone carried out the works. Many private homeowners also benefitted from the funding and the economies of scale.
