Lancashire Retrofit Summit
Lancashire local authorities aspire to build low carbon homes for the future and retrofit existing stock; improving energy efficiency, reducing fuel poverty and tackling climate change. As one of the spatially largest counties, Lancashire boasts many diverse communities – city, urban, sub-urban and rural – bringing many challenges from the quality and age of housing stock and the interventions needed to address climate change and eradicate fuel poverty. The December 2021 event will focus on actions, resources and partnership working across all sectors to deliver positive change throughout the borough, the region and beyond.
In West Lancashire, the council’s development company Tawd Valley Developments has committed to make this a priority, developing a low carbon housing plan – and in doing so has encouraged the fusing together of intelligence, models of good practice and live case studies from housebuilders, developers, academics, consultants, council officers, government officials and others to showcase the possible and to debate the outcomes from the recent COP26 summit.
