Solihull Community Housing has successfully completed a major investment project benefiting hundreds of residents.

330 homes have benefited from cavity wall and loft insulation following a survey of more than 6,000 homes across the borough.

The project is thanks to a partnership with Burrows Home Comfort and the West Midlands Arms Length Management Organisation (ALMO).

Many residents receiving the work have been overwhelmingly positive saying that their homes now feel warmer and retain the heat more effectively.

Residents will also be able to enjoy lower heating bills and the risk of damp in their properties will be reduced - all helping to improve tenants’ standard of living.

SCH Customer Services Director, Carole Hodson, said: “This has been a very exciting and positive 12 months for SCH, working in partnership with Burrows Home Comfort to deliver significant improvements to our properties. “The contract has also given us the opportunity to be able to offer a wonderful service to many of our customers who can now look forward to enjoying warmer, more sustainable homes, as well as benefiting from savings in their energy bills."

The overall cost of the project was £86,700 but this was almost entirely funded by EDF as part of the energy company’s obligation set by OFGEM; the electricity and gas regulator to reduce carbon emissions.
