Wall insulation scheme for Glenrothes homeowners
Loft and cavity wall insulation are to be offered to homeowners in Glenrothes, as Fife Council has successfully bid for financial assistance for this purpose.
The local authority received £575,000 and it hopes it can duplicate the success seen during a similar project in Dunfermline.
It is thought approximately 17,000 households could benefit from lower fuel bills due to the thermal insulation measures installed under this project.
Glenrothes Area Committee chair councillor Fiona Grant urged constituents to take advantage of this offer and renovate their properties.
"Insulating your home is a great way to save money and with fuel prices on the rise, Glenrothes people could use this opportunity to reduce their bills," she asserted.
Homeowners who are likely to fall into fuel poverty will also be identified and provided with support through the Energy Assistance package.
This is part of the Scottish government's Universal Home Insulation Scheme, which is overseen by an implementation group led by minister for housing and communities Alex Neil MSP.
