Tenants in 255 council houses scheduled for home insulation improvements are now set to watch their energy bills rocket this winter due to a delay in contracting the work. The scheme originally proposed in March 2021 would have seen £2.3m spent on insulating selected council homes this year, upgrading energy performance and substantially reducing heating bills for their tenants. Delays in a tender award mean the works may not begin now before 2024. Sheffield Live! reporter Azz Mohammed spoke to Councillor Joe Otten, a member of the strategy and resources policy committee at Sheffield Council.
