Manchester Goes Early in Moston

16th November, 2012

Almost 160 homes on the Moston Mill estate will be made more energy-efficient after Northwards Housing and Manchester City Council won a government bid to lower carbon emissions. The Green Deal Go Early Programme helps pay for home improvements to keep fuel bills down. Northwards Housing, working with Manchester City Council, will start work on the revamp at the end of November and it is expected to be finished by March.

The properties, which are timber framed, will be given external insulation and will be rendered. Some homes will also have their boilers replaced and top-up loft insulation fitted.Tenants have already been consulted on the work, with an open day arranged for later this month. They will also be offered advice on what to do to keep their homes ‘green’.

Larry Patrick, director of property services at Northwards Housing, said: “The work we are doing on the Moston Mill estate will make our homes more secure. We’ll make them warmer, so our tenants spend less on heating their homes, easing the burden of rising fuel costs. In turn, we’ll lessen the amount of CO2 being pumped into the environment, so there’s a real benefit to the environment as well.”
