Lincoln Affordable Warmth Strategy

The City of Lincoln Council Affordable Warmth Strategy was adopted by the Council’s Executive Committee on the 11th March 2022 and reflects recent changes in national, regional and local policies to address fuel poverty. 

The Strategy addresses the Council’s Vision 2025 commitments to improve housing standards for all and contributes to the council’s ongoing work to achieve a net zero carbon target by 2030. 

Key objectives of the Lincoln Affordable Warmth Strategy 2021 – 2026 include: 

  • To reduce the number of Lincoln residents that are in fuel poverty, targeting those with the highest fuel poverty gap. 
  • To improve our processes for identifying residents who are in fuel poverty or at risk of ill health due to a cold home. 
  • To increase the number of homes in Lincoln with domestic energy efficiency ratings of C, one of the key ways in which the City can tackle the Climate Emergency. A key challenge highlighted by the strategy is the recent increase in the level of fuel poverty in Lincoln.
