Local authorities will be able to drive street-by-street delivery of the Green Deal following the launch of a £20m scheme. The Green Deal communities scheme will enable councils to identify target areas that would benefit most from the Green Deal, then offer incentives to households to install energy efficiency improvements.

Energy and climate change minister, Greg Barker, said: ‘If we are going to deliver the Green Deal at real scale then we need a ‘street-by-street’ vision and a ‘street-by-street’ plan. ‘However, local authorities really know their areas best. They know which streets and properties could most benefit from a Green Deal to improve their energy efficiency, and what local people need to provide them with a greater choice.'

Local authorities will be able to bid for a share of the funding until 31 December or until the funds are allocated.
