An Ashburton initiative has won thousands of pounds of Government funding to explore how local homes can go much greener.

Local residents are being urged to “Show us your hotspots” and take part in the study – which will arm all Ashburton householders with expert knowledge to help make their homes cosier and their energy bills smaller.

The money will also pay for 100 residents to take a day trip to a national green building centre to see for themselves the best way to improve their home’s energy efficiency.

Earlier this month, Ashburton Futures qualified for £24,000 worth of Department of Energy and Climate Change funding from the Local Energy Assessment Fund (LEAF) for a project called Making Ashburton-style Homes Fit For the Future (MASHFFF).
