Housing retrofit potential in North London

Purpose of project

To produce a detailed housing stock database for the boroughs involved. The database can then be used to develop technical specifications for housing retrofit for the most common types of dwellings, to deliver the housing sector’s contribution to a 40% CO2 reduction target by 2020.

In addition a business plan and strategy has been developed for delivering a major retrofit programme for 20-30,000 homes per year in the North London Sub-Region (approximately 5,000 per borough). The business plan may evolve to include the retrofit of commercial properties in line with the Government’s proposals for The Green Deal.
