​A move to help residents across the district replace expensive and outdated coal and electric heating with new gas central heating is being considered.

If there is a demand and a will by residents, Wakefield Council will seek to develop a suitable project through which it would offer a heating grant to people who wish to install a first-time gas central heating system.

The Council wants such people to get in touch and register their interest. If the scheme is developed, it would be expected to be launched in 2020 and the people on the register will be contacted directly.

Cllr Denise Jeffery, Wakefield Council’s Cabinet Member for Economic Growth and Regeneration, said: “Gas central heating is a much more energy efficient way to heat your home and helps to reduce fuel bills.

“This scheme would help us to create warmer and healthier homes across our district and I would urge anyone who is interested to get in touch.”

Improving home energy efficiency as well as reducing fuel bills for residents is a key Council priority and residents interested in the scheme should express their interest by 30 August by contacting the Energy Team on 01924 305887 or by email energyteam@wakefield.gov.uk
