Grant will see hundreds of homes fit with central heating

Hundreds of homes in the Leeds area could get central heating installed for the first time after the government announced a pot of £1.7m for the purpose, Telegraph & Argus has reported.

The Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (LEP), through the Better Homes Yorkshire scheme, has been given the funding to help more than 400 households across the region that are not yet connected to the gas mains.

Councillor David Green, chairman of the West Yorkshire Combined Authority investment panel and leader of Bradford Council, said: “By reducing fuel poverty, Better Homes Yorkshire is achieving West Yorkshire Combined Authority’s aim of improving local people’s health and wellbeing.

“This additional funding means that hundreds more families across the region will be keeping their homes warm thanks to gas connections and central heating systems installed as a result of this innovative public and private sector partnership. I would urge any households contacted about Better Homes Yorkshire to take advantage of the scheme.”

From autumn, central heating systems will start being installed in local households deemed to be “fuel poor”.
