PRIVATE tenants who don’t already have gas central heating could look forward to a warmer winter through a grant offered by the council as part of its energy efficiency scheme Better Homes Barnsley.
A limited number of grants are available towards the cost of installing gas central heating systems in private rented properties.
The discount could provide a grant that knocks up to 66 percent off the cost of the average central heating system.
To be eligible, rented properties cannot already have gas central heating and need to be occupied by tenants who are on a low income. Grants are subject to survey and eligibility criteria and may not cover the cost of installing a new gas supply if needed.
For details see betterhomesyorkshire.co.uk or call 0800 597 1500.
