We have secured Government funding to upgrade 100 properties on Chesham Estate with energy and carbon saving work.

The work will include external wall insulation as well as new doors and windows, LED lighting, Solar PV, heating controls, extra loft insulation, draughtproofing and any repairs to the outside of the homes to improve airtightness. Not all properties will be having all the works listed above, it will be based on the retrofit property assessment for each home.

An open day will be held to explain the project in more detail before we start the work and our Project Advisors will be working closely with tenants and the site team to ensure the project can be delivered with the minimum of disruption to our tenants.

The works will start soon and will be expected to be completed by March 2023 at the latest. Once the work is completed, we will be checking to ensure the work has improved the energy efficiency of the homes and reduced the carbon footprint over a 12-month period. The project is being funded by Bury Council with grant funding from the Social Housing Decarbonising Fund and is being delivered in conjunction with other housing providers in Greater Manchester.
