Are you a homeowner with solid walls?

Here's part of a press release from District Council:

Owners of older houses within the Stroud District are being encouraged to take up grants being offered by a joint initiative between Stroud District Council and British Gas whilst the offer remains. The project launched in January to offer grants to improve energy efficiency of houses with solid walls, which are harder and more costly to insulate than cavity walls.  Although spring is underway and people are not likely to be thinking of insulating their homes, funding is only expected to be available for the next 9 months, so now is a good time to apply.

The project is aimed at private householders who are on benefits or a low income living in the 15,000 plus homes in the district with solid walls.  The amount of grant funding available will depend upon the property size and its heating type, although the council is aiming to top them up with a loan for households who do not qualify for the full cost of the measures. This joint initiative will go a long way to helping people whose homes are costly to heat, householders interested in applying should call 0800 500 30 76.
