Question ref. S6W-03714
Asked by: Mark Griffin, Central Scotland, Scottish Labour
Date lodged: 13 October 2021 Registered interest


To ask the Scottish Government which local authorities it has been contacted by to discuss raising the maximum level of funding that can be used to invest in owners’ homes for the Home Energy Efficiency Programmes for Scotland: Area Based Scheme (HEEPS: ABS), and what the outcome was of any such discussions.

Current status: Answered by Patrick Harvie on 4 November 2021


Every year we seek feedback about proposed changes to our ABS programme guidance from every local council. This guidance is also shared in draft with COSLA for information and comment. Scottish Government officials are also regularly approached by individual councils to discuss and where needed, to agree a higher intensity of grant-in-aid for projects with extra costs.
