Affordable Warmth Strategy
Affordable Warmth Strategy 2009-2019
This strategy has been developed by the Integrated Housing Board (a thematic partnership of Haringey Strategic Partnership) and is a sub-strategy of the overarching Housing Strategy 2009-2019.
The multi-partnership Affordable Warmth Strategy identifies how we intend to tackle fuel poverty and promote energy efficiency over the next ten years. The strategy was launched in November 2009 by David Kidney MP, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change.
Our vision for affordable warmth in Haringey is:
To make sure that no household in Haringey lives in a cold, unheated home and that people know how to use energy in their homes efficiently, therefore saving money and reducing CO2 emissions
In order to deliver this our vision our four aims are:
1. Engage with people to improve awareness and understanding of fuel poverty and energy efficiency.
Our aim is to ensure that all agencies play a part in reducing the number of people in fuel poverty and that residents know what help may be available to them and how to get it.
2. Increase the energy efficiency of housing across Haringey.
To reduce long term levels of fuel poverty we must increase the energy efficiency rating of housing within the borough regardless of whether they are social rented, privately rented or owner occupiers.
3. Maximise resources and opportunities for tackling fuel poverty.
There are many funding opportunities available to tackle fuel poverty.
Some have been in existence for some years while others are new. This reflects the growing awareness of the wider impact fuel poverty has. Increasing energy costs and the lack of up take of benefits could increase the incidence of fuel poverty.
4. Link to other strategies.
While affordable warmth is important it must not be seen in isolation.
There are direct links to a number of the council and partners strategies.
We must ensure that our aims are fully embedded within these and identify where there are common priorities and work together to achieve these.
This strategy will be monitored by the Integrated Housing Board who will oversee the work of the Affordable Warmth Forum, whose responsibility it is to deliver the action plan.
