Cotswold District Council Energy Surveys

A campaign by Cotswold District Council, which has received backing from the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), has been launched to help push for more domestic premises to achieve the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES).

The campaign will include practical help and support for landlords with non-compliant properties, including a free energy survey, if booked before the end of March.

The surveys, undertaken by Severn Wye Energy Agency on behalf of the District Council, will be allocated on a ‘first come, first served basis’ and will include a report, giving tailored recommendations and costings on how to bring the property up to the legal requirements.

Under the current rules, landlords are not obligated to spend more than £3,500 on retro-fitting energy performance improvements, even if their property then fails to make the grade. Modifications that cost more than the cap, may, in some cases, attract grant-funding.

Further help and support is available on Cotswold District Council’s website
