Double Glazing Industry in the North West Given Huge Boost by Council Plans
CHESTER, England, June 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Sites such as Double Glazing Prices have been extolling the virtues of a piece of legislature signed in the North West which has seen orders for double glazing windows and doors sky rocket. Council plans have meant that up to 1,200 residents in West Lancashire will get new double glazing and doors for their homes.
The news has not only come as music to the ears of suppliers of quality double glazing, but also tenants who can look forward to cheaper heating bills this winter. Many residents are hopeful of having their new double glazed windows installed in time for Christmas, meaning that their extra cash could well contribute to yuletide joy.
The news has come about as a result of West Lancashire Borough Council signing a £4 million contract with a refurbishment and regeneration specialist company.
Work on the new homes will begin straight away and once finished, will result in every West Lancashire Council house having brand new and totally efficient double glazing.
This scheme is the first stage of a £60 million investment programme in the authority's homes over the next five years and heralds the start of some brighter times for the West Lancashire community.
Cllr Adrian Owens is the Portfolio Holder for Housing (Finance), Regeneration and Estates and had the following to say of the issue; "The decision to invest in replacement windows and doors was made in agreement with tenants and was identified as a priority for improvement following a comprehensive stock survey.
"At a recent consultation event, tenants confirmed that energy efficiency was their top priority for investment.
