Hillhouse gets sustainable cash boost

Hillhouse gets sustainable cash boost
An area in Kirklees has been chosen by the government to become one of the UK's first low-carbon communities.

The Hillhouse region of Huddersfield is set to receive up to £500,000 from the Department of Energy and Climate Change to invest in making the area more sustainable.

Funding will come from its £10 million Low Carbon Communities Challenge cash pot, which was set-up to help communities become more energy efficient.

Hillhouse is one of ten areas from across the country to be singled out for funding through the initiative.

Energy and climate change minister Joan Ruddock said: "We've had more than 300 communities register their interest with the Low Carbon Communities Challenge, so there's a real appetite out there to save energy to help tackle global warming and save money on fuel bills.

"The ten winning projects will now spend the money on things like community wind turbines, solar panels, heat pumps, insulation or green transport projects to cut emissions."

West Oxford, Chale Green, Reepham and Totnes were also chosen to receive government funding, along with Berwick upon Tweed, Blacon and Muswell Hill.
