A competition will find innovative new projects for healthy housing in Leeds and York
The government is calling for healthy housing ideas to improve energy efficiency and allow residents to monitor their power usage. Data shows that many households in the country do not meet the required constant temperature of 18°c, leaving residents’ health at risk.
The competition is being run by Innovate UK and the Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI) and £1.25 million is available for winning projects, with the funds provided by GovTech Catalyst. The projects will be put into practice by Leeds and York councils and will take into account a variety of homes and inhabitants including tower blocks.
