Cornerstone is working with five local authorities, or consortiums of local authorities, to deliver more than 300 insulation measures under the first phase of the Green Homes Grant (GHG) Local Authority Delivery (LAD) scheme – LAD1a.
We have worked with our partners since August 2020 to support them in designing and costing their schemes, providing technical advice for their applications and then implementing the schemes. All of the local authorities with which we have partnered were successful with their LAD1a bids, and are currently in the delivery phase. Cornerstone is providing an end to end service, from the initial property survey through to measure installation, including direct customer liaison and the provision of detailed reporting.
Our schemes are predominantly located in our core operating areas of the East and South East of England, although we are also supporting past clients as far afield as Cheshire.
The main measure we are installing under the scheme is external wall insulation to traditional solid wall properties and to park homes. Despite the challenges of a cold and wet winter and of the pandemic, installations are continuing apace and customers are delighted with the improvement the work has made to their homes.
We look forward to another busy year working with our partners old and new under LAD1b and LAD2, as well as continuing to accommodate private enquiries via the Green Homes Grant Voucher Scheme.
