NLC Wins Prestigious Award At Green Deal Awards
North Lanarkshire Council has secured the prestigious team of the year award at the National Green Deal & ECO Awards.
The council’s Local Homes energy team secured first place against competition from across Scotland for providing heating solutions and practical energy-saving tips, as well as installing new thermal performance solutions and external wall insulation at almost 800 privately and council owned properties.
Des Murray, head of housing property, said: “We have been working hard to improve homes across our communities and to secure this top award is an outstanding achievement.
“Everyone knows the importance of having a warm and eco-friendly home, and we want to help people achieve this while also saving them money on their household bills.
“Our team focuses on providing tailored solutions for our residents, identifying a range of measures including cavity and external wall insulation and efficient heating solutions.
“In addition, we are currently running our collective Big Switch money saving campaign to encourage people to sign up and save money on their future fuel bills.”
The team have also been shortlisted for the Maintaining High Quality Homes award by the Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) and Inside Housing magazine.
