TCPA welcomes £100m insulation pledge

TCPA welcomes £100m insulation pledge
The government has been urged to remain committed to the low carbon economy by housing charity the Town and Country Planning Association (TCPA).

Chancellor Alistair Darling's announcement of a green technology sector stimulus, including £100 million for further insulation incentives, was welcomed by TCPA chief executive Gideon Amos.

He said: "With escalating fuel bills this winter and the pressing need to improve our housing stock in the face of climate change, the government is right to introduce measures designed to improve the energy efficiency of our homes."

Mr Amos also added that the government had to remain committed to housing and environment.

"Moving towards a low carbon economy in this way has the potential to create exciting new business opportunities, stimulating jobs, improving the efficiency of our buildings, creating new sources of clean energy and helping protect those most at risk of fuel poverty," he said.

Mr Darling's pre-budget report, the most anticipated since Labour took power in 1997, included continued incentives for renewable energy technology through the Renewable Obligation and at the same time levied an airline passenger duty on long-haul flights.

The government recently agreed to include carbon emissions from aviation in calculations of the national carbon dioxide footprint.
