Social Housing Decarbonisation Funding (SHDF)

Stevenage Borough Council has recently been successful in securing funding from the Social Housing Decarbonisation Funding (SHDF). SHDF is a national scheme that aims to deliver warm, energy efficient homes, reduce carbon emissions and fuel bills and tackle fuel poverty.

We will be using this funding to target properties that are the least energy efficient. The upgrades aim to ensure energy usage in tenant’s homes is more efficient, reduce the cost of tenants heating bills and lower the amount of carbon emissions produced.

The scheme will fund a range of energy efficiency measures which may include wall insulation, loft insulation, energy efficient lighting and solar panels. However works will vary depending on the property.

The scheme is due to run over the next 12 months. If your home is due to be included as part of this scheme you will be contacted by letter to inform you and this will outline the next steps.

There is no need for you to contact us in regard to this scheme as we will contact you directly if you are eligible.
