More Insulation Needed For Scilly’s Homes

hugh town housesThe Council’s Senior Officer in charge of Health and Wellbeing says he’s keen to get more free home insulation for Isles of Scilly residents.

Joel Williams told members of the Health and Wellbeing Committee that the free offers available to people on the mainland “seem to finish at Land’s End.”

He’s working with our MP Andrew George to try to tackle that inequality.

The Council is also building a list of people on the islands who need their homes insulated, so when projects become available they can go ahead quickly.

Joel said winter wellbeing experts had visited properties in Scilly last week to provide surveys and advice for residents, with many saving hundreds of pounds after switching their energy supplier.

They also identified inefficient heating systems, which could save householders even more cash.
