Help is available to all residents in Tamworth to make homes as energy efficient as possible. This can range from practical, independent advice, to financial assistance in the form of grants or loans. Find out about the Warm Zone Fund here. An energy efficient home is a warmer home which is also cheaper to heat and will improve health and wellbeing.

Taking a Strategic Approach, The Home Energy Conservation Act 1995 recognises local authorities' ability to significantly improve the energy efficiency of all residential accommodation in their area. The Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change (DECC) has therefore requested that all local authorities report on the measures they propose to take to achieve this aim.

Tamworth Borough Council has worked to produce its HECA Plan Progress Report 2015 which outlines the Council's strategic approach to domestic energy efficiency over future years. Subsequent progress reports will be published on this page at two-year intervals.

Warm Zones Funding

This is a government scheme which offers full grants for central heating systems, new boilers, cavity wall and loft insulation. Our Home Energy Advice Tamworth (HEAT) scheme is working in partnership with Warm Zones CiC to offer 100% funding for the installation of heating systems and insulation in qualifying parts of Tamworth.

The funding is being made available by the Tamworth Borough Council and the Warm Zones Fund, which targets the areas of greatest need. There is no need to be in receipt of benefits to qualify for the funding.

Owner occupied, privately rented and council-owned homes can all benefit from the funding, as long as they are in those parts of Tamworth designated as Carbon Savings Community Obligation Areas. Click on our list of eligible postcode areas to see if you are eligible for this funding or call the free HEAT number on 0800 043 2815.

Owner occupied and privately rented homes in the CSCO areas are eligible for a new heating system (where there is none currently fitted), a replacement heating system/boiler where the current system/boiler is beyond repair, cavity wall and loft insulation. Homes rented from Tamworth Borough Council in the CSCO area are eligible for cavity wall and loft insulation.
