Home Energy Conservation Act and affordable warmth

As a home energy conservation authority, Cheltenham Borough Council is required under the Home Energy Conservation Act (HECA) to report to government on issues relating to improving energy efficiency in residential accommodation.

Cheltenham Borough Council work closely with the other district authorities within Gloucestershire, South Gloucestershire council and other local partners. As a consortium of local authorities we have planned locally how we intend to work towards improving energy efficiency across housing within our updated affordable warmth strategy.

The affordable warmth strategy spans the next five years with a rolling action plan, it is intended that the action plan will be updated regularly and progress will be published every two years in-line with requirements under HECA. The next progress update and report for April 2017 - March 2019 is available to download.
