Getting things done - Abbotsford and Corso area

Just before Christmas, I had a well-attended meeting with residents in the Abbotsford and Corso area.

The residents asked when external wall insulation (EWI) was likely to be delivered for the area.   The council's Housing Investment Manager has now advised :
Regarding (the) Corso Street (development), we are planning on carrying out EWI at this location around 2019/20.
This is of course subject to the usual caveats of available funding through HEEPs* and our own capital finance.
* (HEEPs is funding that goes to councils to develop and deliver fuel poverty programs - mainly solid wall insulation)
