Residents complain of incomplete work carried out under ECO scheme

A Bradford MP has agreed to help residents of a Bradford estate who have been left “in limbo” due to cuts to a scheme to make their homes more energy-friendly, Telegraph and Argus reported.

Bradford East MP David Ward was contacted by residents of the Parkside estate in Bowling over issues caused by work to “clad” their homes.

Since last year hundreds of households on the estate have signed up for the Energy Companies Obligation (ECO) scheme – which is funded by energy companies and is part of the Government’s Green Deal programme.

Leeds-based Green Deal Warehouse is one of the companies that has been working on the estate, installing cladding on houses that would cut energy bills.

In recent weeks people who signed up have complained of work not being completed or delays between scaffolding being installed and work being done. Others are unsure if work on their houses will start.

Mr Ward has visited the estate and plans to speak with the company about the issues that were raised.

Residents who contacted the Telegraph & Argus have complained of drainpipes not being re-attatched properly after other work was completed, fittings including lights and burglar alarms not being re-attatched to walls, construction gear and rubbish being left in gardens and scaffolding being left up for weeks.
