I am delighted to see that North Somerset is going to incorporate carbon reduction principles into its overall strategy.

The emphasis is clearly on future large scale housing development projects, which is fine. However, I am also looking for attempts to encourage adapting/improving existing housing stock by giving local grants towards insulation and microgeneration projects such as the installation of solar panels, heat pumps etc. Some other councils in the South West are doing this already, North Somerset should join their ranks.
