Our response to London Councils’ Retrofit Housing Action Plan

Responding to the launch of London Councils’ Retrofit Housing Action Plan, Rob Whitehead, Director of Strategic Projects, Centre for London said:

“Emissions from heating our homes are a major cause of the climate crisis. London’s local authorities know this, which is why they have ambitious plans to retrofit homes, reducing both carbon emissions and energy bills – for renters and homeowners.

“Now the government must step up and give councils the funding and powers they need to put these plans into action. The government should also ensure that any scheme to decarbonise heating works well for London’s unique mix of housing stock, tenure and incomes.”
