Over Β£800,000 is to be spent on the latest phase of the external wall insulation (EWI) programme in Dundee which will provide warmer, more energy efficient homes for another 72 properties, the Neighbourhood Services Committee will hear on Monday (04 June).

Over Β£40 million has been spent across the city to ensure homes are easier to heat and more energy efficient.

The latest round of external wall insulation could benefit properties in Polepark.

Kevin Cordell Convener of Dundee City Council’s neighbourhood services committee said: β€œIn Dundee we are committed to combating fuel poverty and this latest round of investment will see us move a step closer to eradicating it.

β€œIt is my firm commitment that the council will continue to do all it can to make sure that the people of Dundee have energy efficient homes they can afford to heat.”

The project, if approved, will receive funding from Dundee City Council, Energy Company Obligation (ECO) AND Home Energy Efficiency Programme Scotland – Area Based Schemes (HEEPS – ABS) funding.

SSE are manging the work on behalf of the council, with work due to be completed by April 2019.
