Yes, it was originally very clear.PaulS wrote:The scheme as defined aims to insulate eventually All property, not just the rich or the poor.
It starts with housing associations and council properties, i.e.some of the poorest.
Terraced housing is very suitable for this treatment - also largely occupied by the poorer amongst us.
In conclusion it aims to tackle the poorer housing stock where the incidence of fuel poverty will be rife FIRST.
Is that clear?
But I questioned whether the costings lagger provided would cover houses which I thought would be difficult to tackle.
lagger provided clarification:An Inspector Calls wrote:We're talking here of those swathes of late Victorian, Edwardian, 225 mm solid brick walled houses that form much of the housing stock esp. of northern Britain. The ones with no damp course, a roof on its last legs, the houses that cost less than £150,000.
So the very houses that desparately need the work (perhaps completely demolishing would be better) in order to address the very real and serious issue of fuel poverty are to be excluded under the scheme envisaged by lagger. At the moment we seem to be aiming for the gentry of Chester!lagger wrote:I'm not talking about insulating derelict, or even semi derelict, housing. If the place is nigh on falling down there is not a lot of point insulating it. There are hundreds of thousands of pre 1920s houses in the country that are in perfectly good condition and well worth insulating.
Is that now clear to you?
