Summary

The Department wrote to chief executives of local authorities highlighting the need for councils to act strategically by using powers to tackle cold homes in the private rented sector. It refers to:

  • the Government announcement on increased funding for national energy efficiency schemes to help households to reduce their fuel bills;
  • the need for councils to use their enforcement powers for the hazard, "excess cold" under Part 1 of the Housing Act 2004(HHSRS);
  • funding streams available to assist councils through the Regional Housing Pot.
