The Hills Report on fuel poverty

Published by NickSted on 15 March 2012

I am sure much will be said on today's report ( http://www.decc.gov.uk/en/content/cms/funding/fuel_poverty/hills_review/hills_review.aspx ).

For Wiltshire, para 38 in the Summary and Conclusions is very relevant: a subset of half the increasing number of households in fuel poverty are those living in pre-1945 single wall houses in rural areas not on the gas grid.

Fuel poverty is a serious problem in Wiltshire and the Energy Group in Transition Marlborough must address it.
