Local Councils and the Green Deal


This report summarises some of the main concerns that have been expressed about the equity of Green Deal implementation. It then considers how Local Councils could help to overcome these concerns. To do this, the report sets out what Local Councils are, what they do, and their apparent level of interest in energy action. It then considers a range of possible roles, noting the initial reaction of Local Council representatives to these roles and some of the barriers they identified. The report concludes with some suggestions as to how these barriers might be overcome.
