£750k plan to help homes without central heating

Residents living without central heating in Doncaster will benefit from a £750,000 investment programme to help them improve their properties, Thorne and District Gazette has reported.

The scheme will bring modern gas central heating to around 170 households that currently have no central heating, electric fires or storage heaters.

To qualify, households must be low income or in receipt of income-related benefits.

The money comes from a successful bid by Doncaster Council in June to the Department of Energy & Climate Change.

Works will be undertaken between November 2015 and June 2016 by local contractors.

Mayor of Doncaster Ros Jones said: “Tackling fuel poverty across the borough is a key priority for me. I am pleased that we are able to make this significant investment in bringing much-needed central heating to many of the families in most need, while at the same time supporting local business.”
