CLOSE to £2m will be received from the government to improve energy efficiency in 150 council homes.
The £1.6m from the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy is to be formally accepted by cabinet members on April 6.
But ahead of that meeting a memorandum of understanding has been signed and returned to the government department.
Coun Tim Cheetham, cabinet spokesperson for regeneration and culture, said: “We know people are seeing an increase in energy bills at the moment so we’re thrilled to be able to make this investment to help tenants.”
