Do you live in Belgrave? If so, your views are being sought about a new project which could see mains gas being installed.
And an event giving more information is set to take place at Belgrave Sports and Social Club, Wilnecote Lane, on Tuesday March 18th.
Running between 3pm and 8pm, all Belgrave residents are being invited to come along and hear more about the project.
The project is being run in partnership with National Grid Affordable Warmth Solutions. It could see more than 270 homes in the area being able to access mains gas – and have gas central heating installed.
Representatives from National Grid Affordable Warmth Solutions, Mears – which provides council housing repairs – and Tamworth Borough Council staff will all be on hand to give more information at the event.
Work to construct new gas mains could start early this summer and following this, the council will start work on installing new energy efficient heating systems in council homes.
Thanks to National Grid Affordable Warmth Solutions and the funding package it has arranged, it would not just be council tenants who would benefit from new gas heating; privately owned homes may also be able to access gas and have central heating installed by the company.
If the scheme gets the go-ahead, it could make a big difference to people living in Belgrave and provide more efficient and cost effective heating system.
