Bristol fuel poverty action plan
CSE worked with council officers and the No Cold Homes Steering Group to develop a plan that included achievable, clear actions to tackle fuel poverty in the city.
This project, led by CSE’s Nicky Hodges, came in the wake of the council’s Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) that was published in 2018. The fuel poverty chapter of the JSNA – which CSE wrote – described the resources and assets that the city can build on in its approach to tackling fuel poverty. It recommended the collaborative development of a fuel poverty strategy as one of a set of recommendations towards reducing and ultimately eliminating fuel poverty in Bristol.
CSE staff and BCC officers engaged a wide range of organisations and groups such as the One City Plan boards and various frontline support agencies in the development of the action plan so that it reflected existing key work and set out what more needs to happen to achieve targets.
