Efficient Scotland: Area Based Scheme (EES:ABS) works to resume

Works on External Wall Insulation will commence the week beginning Monday 13th July 2020 across the Highlands, in line with the Scottish construction restart plan of the Energy Efficient Scotland: Area Based Scheme.

In line with national guidance, contractors will be undertaking phased restarts and adhering to social distancing to allow workers to return to construction sites gradually while using measures such as hand hygiene. Additional steps will be in place to address risks and protect workers, families and the general public.

Contractors have supplied The Highland Council with detailed work plans for safe working, encompassing social distancing, and following all guidance relating to COVID-19.

Work on people’s homes will only restart when householders and workers feel it is safe to do so.

The Highlands Energy Efficient Scotland: Area Based Scheme provides significant grant funding opportunities to Highland owner occupiers and private rented tenants to undertake energy efficiency improvements to their home. Works can result in significant savings on the household energy bills.
