Wiltshire Council is offering a grant for loft and cavity wall insulation, to keep your home warmer and save on heating bills and carbon emissions.
Residents may be able to have the work done for free if they fall into one of these categories:
- Householders over 60 years old.
- Households whose total income is less than œ16,000 per year gross
- Families with children under 16 with an income below œ22,000 per year gross
- Households with an income of below œ30,000 per year gross where a member has been made redundant, lost overtime or taken lower paid work.
- In receipt of benefits
But everyone is entitled to at least a partial grant.
Home owners and private tenants are eligible to apply. Residents of flats are also able to apply provided all in the block are in agreement.
All grant offers are subject to survey, as the grant covers a maximum area of loft or wall, and has a maximum value of œ200 per insulation type.
