Residents living in three areas in Havering are set to benefit from a energy saving scheme.

Elm Park ward, St Andrew’s ward and Romford Town Ward has been selected for the RE:NEW2 scheme.

The areas were chosen based on areas of private housesholds which are most suitable for insulation measures and where there are more residents facing fuel poverty.

The London wide scheme is being run by the Mayor of London to help residents to save energy and become more energy efficient.

People living in the wards will have received letters explaining the scheme.

The programme will run until March th

Cllr Andrew Curtin, cabinet member for culture, towns and communities recently accompanied one of the qualified energy efficiency advisors on a visit to a home in Romford to provide free energy advice, offer free energy and water saving devices.

He said: “It’s not always obvious how to save money on bills and some of the options can seem expensive or too much hassle.

“The advisor explained everything in simple terms and explained exactly how much money the different options saved and what they involved, all tailored to that property.”
