Notting Hill plan Eco-refit

The Notting Hill Housing Trust is eco-refurbishing some Hammersmith properties, which it says could save its tenants nearly £1,300 a year on energy bills.

The first property revamped under the project will be an empty large Victorian terraced house. Seven empty flat conversions in Hammersmith will be next, followed by the final seven which will have tenants still in place.

Proposed features include flat plate solar panels, kitchen worktops made from recycled materials, rainwater harvesting, recycling bins and low energy light fittings.

The work, being done by United House, should be complete this year, and will also reduce carbon emissions at the properties by over 75 per cent. The refurbishment will be analysed by the University of Brighton which will publish its findings next year.

Andrew Belton – COO of Notting Hill Housing Group – is among the speakers at the Place West London Conferenceon October 13.
