Northampton Borough Council News Release: Tackling fuel poverty by helping households achieve affordable warmth

Northampton Borough Council has launched its first Affordable Warmth Strategy  to help alleviate fuel poverty and tackle home energy efficiencies in Northampton. This strategy is in its draft stages and we are looking for your views on how to shape it. This piece of work is so important due to recent announcements from energy providers increasing their tariffs. This has a significant impact on our residents; as it could push them into fuel poverty. A household is considered to be in fuel poverty if it needs to spend more than 10% of its income on fuel to maintain an adequate level of warmth. The links between ill health, poor housing and fuel poverty are well documented.

Northampton householders reminded to check electoral registration forms now

Northampton households who have not checked their electoral registration forms and confirmed the details are correct are being reminded to do so now.
Forms were sent out by Northampton Borough Council to over 90,000 households in the town last month asking them to check that the details of who is listed as living at the address are correct and to then let the council know.
