As part of a competitive bidding process
co-ordinated through the Combined Authority, Sefton Council have
been awarded £3,374,297 of grant funding to retrofit 307
poorly insulated homes for low-income Sefton residents. The funding
has come from the Department of Business Energy & Industrial
Strategy (BEIS) as part of the government’s post covid 19
response and supporting the UK Net Zero Carbon by 2050
An additional £1M was awarded to Sefton in November 2022 which will be used to upgrade an additional 100 properties. This additional funding was reported to Council, with a request to accept the funding, via the regular financial management update in November 2022.
The newly formed Dept. For Energy Security and Net Zero (DESNZ) announced 10 February, that the Sustainable Warmth scheme would be extended by six months, however they are yet to confirm additional funding requested by Sefton. A decision on the request for an additional £2M will be reviewed from mid-March 2023.
