To make your home warmer and more energy efficientCDC Logo

Hundreds of pounds can be wasted if your home is not energy efficient and Chichester District Council has a new webpage to provide information on where to get advice on saving energy in the home and grants that are available to improve the energy efficiency of your property. Most grants are available to households on the lowest incomes but there are financial schemes that can help make some measures more affordable to install. To find out more information on grants and schemes please visit: If you want advice on where to start with a home retrofit project, visit:

You can also get advice and support through the Citizens Advice Energy Advice team who can help you identify and apply for grants. See their top tips for saving energy by visiting:

Did you know that our homes contribute 30% of carbon emissions in our district, which in turn has an impact on climate change. By making our homes more energy efficient we can not only save money and keep warm, but we can also lower our carbon emissions and help reduce the risks of climate change. Now is the time to start planning for a warm home next winter!
