Local Authority Delivery LAD Phase 2 is a £300million programme to fund home retrofit in England. Local Energy Hubs in each of five English regions are providing allocations of funding to participating Local Authorities.
Local Authorities which are participating in this programme have some discretion over which homes to target and which energy measures to focus on.
This means that in some areas, a campaign will be launched to invite private households on a low incomes to participate. Some of these campaigns will be restricted to particular post codes areas with high deprivation and older housing stock.
In some areas, a local authority will be supporting a registered provider of social housing to deliver works to tenants. Private landlords may participate in these schemes at the discretion of the local authority.
These regionally administered programmes are one of several waves of funding GHG Local Authority Delivery (LAD). An initial £200 Million of GHG LAD Phase 1 funding has also been awarded to Local Authorities on a competitive basis in September 2020 and January 2021.
It is anticipated there will be future rounds for funding to enable local authorities to support their communities to address fuel poverty and poor energy performance of homes.
