Homes Transformed in Matlock With £100k Grant

Aug 4, 2020 | Environment News

Westville is proud to have helped transform a number of “non-traditional” homes at Matlock’s Hurst Farm, thanks to the £100,000 government funding from Derbyshire Dales District Council.

Part of the ongoing Hurst Farm Regeneration project, re-cladding work was devised on 11 of the privately-owned 1950s homes, which has helped dramatically improve the energy efficiency of the properties, allowing the homeowners to save on their energy bills and reduce CO2 emissions.

The re-cladding scheme has thrilled residents, including Michael and Marilyn Bailey, who has lived at their home in Overdale for 46 years – and it now looks like new thanks to the scheme and Westville’s services.

Mr Bailey said: “As soon as Westville started the insulation work in February the house became immediately warmer and we’ve really noticed the benefit.”

Director of Housing Rob Cogings said:

“There are 43 non-traditional homes in total at Hurst Farm and this important work takes the thermal insulation from the standards of 1950s to that of a new home built today.”

“The finished properties really do look like new homes and help to improve the look and feel of the area as well as improving the energy efficiency of the homes. This helps residents, many of whom are elderly, and the planet.”

Cladding works reduce energy costs by 40% to 50% and reduce CO2 emissions by 30 tonnes per property over 20 years.
