Some buildings owned by community buildings in Balsall Heath will be getting help to make their buildings more energy efficient. John Newson for Balsall Heath Is our Planet will be advising them, paid for with a grant from the Grassorots Grants programme of Birmingham Foundation.

The cold weather makes our community organisations very aware that they are struggling with buildings that leak too much heat and suffer from draughts. This means money is being wasted which is badly needed to sustain the services they offer to local residents.

The programme will continue to the end of March and five buildings will have energy saving plans in place by then. contact John Newson at BHIOP[at] or 0121 440 7919

The motion for a review of the evidence and a trial period was passed with a majority of 82 votes.
