1. £99 Insulation Deal
For a limited period, local homeowners and private tenants can get cavity wall or loft insulation fitted for a standard price of £99 each. At this low price insulation pays for itself fast in reduced energy bills.
The Council’s £99 deal is subject to funding and is being managed exclusively by Cocoon, a long standing partner of the Council. You may have to pay more if your property is larger than average for the number of bedrooms, or access to walls or loft is restricted or extra vents are required.
To find out more, call 0800 8048 777 and ask for the ‘Oxon Deal’ or visit www.cocoonyourhome.co.uk
2. Transport Funding Available
An opportunity has arisen to secure £5000 of funding for a transport specific community based project. The judges are looking for original ideas in three areas:
Vehicles and Fuels, Smarter/Eco Driving and Reducing Car Use.
If you think your community has some good ideas or projects I would encourage you to apply.
