Local MSP, Michael Russell, is highlighting a home improvement scheme – funded by the Scottish Government Argyll and Bute Council, BCA and Alienergy and available exclusively to Dunoon.
The MSP is urging residents of Dunoon to register now for this free insulation scheme for hard to treat homes.
The UHIS grant scheme is for solid walled properties and will stop taking referrals at the end of this month.
Residents who have not registered their interest before the 31st March will be unable to join the 173 other stone walled properties who have already benefited from this unique grant scheme.
There is no qualifying criteria other than living in a property:
- which is not in the social rented sector
- which is made of stone,
- which is a no fines concrete construction
- or which is a pre-1970s non-traditional timber frame.
Michael Russell says:
‘This scheme is available to properties in and around Dunoon and is time limited.
‘Residents who are interested in reducing their fuel bills should register and take advantage of the free no obligation survey on offer. Money is available to install internal wall insulation and there need be no cost to the tenant or resident. I would urge anyone who is interested to register using the hotline at 01501 825682.
‘Time is running out, Dunoon residents who want to feel warmer and save some money on their fuel bills should register their interest before it is too late.
‘Argyll has a lot of properties which are, because of their construction, considered hard to treat and therefore leave residents at higher risk of fuel poverty.
‘This is a great opportunity to take advantage of this unique Scottish Government funded grant scheme.’
