The scheme involves upgrading over 600 homes in Greenwich

The work will see 665 homes upgraded to an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of C. This is in line with the government’s target for all social housing to achieve EPC C by 2030.

Wates will fit new wall insulation, loft insulation and windows.

Work is due to finish next March.
