DENBIGHSHIRE Council has announced plans to tackle the issue of fuel poverty throughout the county.

The Fuel Poverty Action Plan will link with Denbighshire’'s Big Plan  to reduce poverty among disadvantaged families, pensioners and people in rural communities.

Cllr Hugh Irving, lead Member for Customers and Communities, said: “"The success of this action plan will depend on all of our organisations working together effectively and innovatively at a time when resources and funding are becoming increasingly scarce.

"We will be evaluating our work and, most importantly, what difference it is making to the quality of life for our residents and will be reporting back to the Denbighshire Advice Network on a six monthly basis."

Fuel poverty affects around 26 per cent of households in the region who spend more than 10 per cent of their income on fuel - affecting around 10,600 homes in Denbighshire.

Work has also begun to identify areas where homes will benefit from ECO energy efficient measures and the council is working with Cadwyn Clwyd to explore the possibility of renewable heat incentives and subsidies from utility companies.

These actions are set out to maximise people’s income, resolve personal debts and securing the best possible fuel prices available for those struggling to heat their homes.
