Low carbon home improvements part of renovation plan

Low carbon home improvements part of renovation plan
A new million-pound home renewal project will see homes in Peterborough receiving a low carbon renovation.

Accent Nene, a housing association, is investing some £3 million in maintaining its rented and shared equity homes in the area, reports the Peterborough Telegraph.

Some two-thirds of this sum is being spent on revamping the kitchens and bathrooms and renewing the heater and boiler systems in the properties, along with exterior work, adds the news provider.

Technical services manager at Accent Nene, Ken Fox, told the publication: "This investment programme demonstrates our commitment to providing high quality homes for our tenants."

Local contractors are carrying out the majority of the work.

Accent Nene provides 3,500 homes across Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, east Northamptonshire, Lincolnshire, Rutland and Nottinghamshire.

Earlier this year, the group won a contact to provide a "sustainable community" at the Windmill Estate in Fulbourn near Cambridge.

It will provide 120 new dwellings and a new community centre.ADNFCR-1235-ID-18653533-ADNFCR
