End Fuel Poverty Councillor Pledge

Councils have a vital role to play in ending fuel poverty. Councillors – and prospective councillors – can now pledge to do all they can to end fuel poverty.

As a councillor, I pledge to do all I can to end the scourge of fuel poverty. I will campaign for:
– improving energy efficiency of Council / housing association housing stock
– better enforcement of existing regulations on energy efficiency and property standards in the private rented sector
– improving private tenants’ rights
– providing information advice and guidance on energy efficiency and benefits to those most at risk of fuel poverty
– the use of central government energy scheme grants to help those most at risk
– bring forward the End Fuel Poverty motion to a Council meeting in 2022
– urge the Westminster Government to implement the End Fuel Poverty Coalition’s Local Authority Fuel Poverty Action Plan.

Councillors and local activists can bring a motion on fuel poverty to the next Council meeting. Local authorities can also contact the Coalition for more information and to join as members.
