Corby Borough Council is soon beginning a programme of works to hundreds of homes in the Borough to help them stay warm and save money on their fuel bills.
The Council has appointed Westdale Services Ltd to regenerate hundreds of their housing stock in Lindisfarne Rd, Welland Vale, Shetland Way, Willow Brook Road, Chelveston Drive, Woodnewton Way and Coleridge Way over the next three to four months in order to make them more thermally efficient. Works will include roofing, soffits, fascias, gutters, external wall insulation as well as landscaping & environmental works. Subsequent phases of work will follow in 2018 and 2019.
Westdale Services recently picked up the accolade of Best National Insulation Company for the third year running – building upon their recent success of Best Large-scale Project at the Yorkshire & Humberside awards back in June 2016. Their nationally-recognised projects have played a vital role in tackling fuel poverty by helping residents live in warmer homes and save money on their energy bills, as well as providing long-term solutions for the UK’s least energy efficient housing stock.
Westdale are in the process of notifying the residents of the selected properties, and they will be hosting a community consultation event on Monday 13th March, giving residents an opportunity to meet the team and address any concerns. The Community Consultation Event will take place at Lodge Park Sports Centre Shetland Way, in the bar area, from 4-7pm. All are welcome.
Corby Borough Council’s Lead Member for Housing, Cllr Bob Eyles, said:
‘We are very pleased to be working with Westdale to make these improvements to hundreds of our homes in the Borough, not only will this help keep our residents warm but we hope that it will also help them save money too.’
Adrian Bishop, Divisional Manager for Westdale, Commented: “We are delighted to be again working to help the residents of Corby, and we look forward to making a positive, long-term impact through this regeneration scheme”.
Because the work will involve working on occupied properties, we are asking everyone to be extra careful to ensure children in the area remain safe and secure. Please help Corby Borough Council and Westdale Service Ltd stay accident-free. Each property is a ‘building site’ and as such, needs to be treated as one. Westdale will also be working with local schools to help reinforce this message.
