Housing in Exeter showcased at national level

The trailblazing work of housing teams in Exeter is being showcased this week at a national conference.

Staff from Exeter City Council are in Bournemouth for the Local Government Association Annual Conference 2023.

There they will tell council colleagues from across the UK about housing initiatives in Exeter that are making life better for tenants across the city.

These include a retrofit scheme to install energy efficiency measures in council homes, a Passivhaus Extra Care Scheme, which helps to take pressure off the NHS, and a 91 apartment development with community facilities in Vaughan Road.

The retrofit scheme helps reduce bills for tenants as well as lowering the city’s carbon footprint. Already 400 council homes have been fitted with measures such as insulation, new windows and doors, draft proofing, heat pumps and solar panels. Funding has been secured for an additional 245 more homes to be fully retrofitted over the next two years.

Cllr Barbara Denning, Lead Councillor for Council Housing Development and Support Services, said: “It’s great for our teams to be able to showcase the fantastic work going on in Exeter, where we are delivering a housing strategy that works for residents, partners and the environment.

“I really am proud of Exeter and our teams, for the trailblazing work they are carrying out for those living in this great city.”
