Energy Conservation

The Council recognises the many benefits of energy conservation and is committed to improving energy efficiency standards.

The Home Energy Conservation Act 1995 (HECA) requires all local authorities to report on the energy conservation measures that they are undertaking to improve energy efficiency in residential accommodation in their area.

Our HECA Progress Report 2019 sets out how the Council has progressed since its last report.
