A big thank you too to everyone who completed our housing survey – more 160 people completed the survey following its publication on our last newsletter email in March and via an article on the Bath Chronicle.
Highlights of the survey results include
- Affordable homes with good transport links were the top priorities, closely followed by low energy homes.
- More than 98% of you stated it was right for B&NES to impose higher standards on builders than minimum building regulation standards.
- Respondents were prepared to pay on average an extra £6,200 for low energy comes, or an average of £57 extra per month if renting.
- There was a very clear preference for the use of renewables in our electricity generation with very few favouring coal or shale gas. 98% would also be happy to use a local community owned energy supplier.
A detailed write-up of the results of the survey are available on our website, here.
