Mike Coppock, Head of Assets says, “We have been delighted to be receiving such positive feedback from tenants and residents of Gamesley, the work that has being carried out has made a real difference to the appearance of the properties, and it will be helping tenants to save money on their energy bills in the future. We are proud to be part of such an innovative and exciting project”
Anthony Mckeown, executive councillor for community services says “This important partnership project will achieve warmer homes and lower fuel bills for more than 500 homes. Estimates suggest that the improvements could reduce households’ heating bills by around £200 a year while shrinking the housing stock’s carbon footprint and ensuring that it remains fit for purpose for many years to come. The project underlines our commitment and that of our partners to ensuring decent, sustainable and affordable housing across the High Peak”.
