Home Energy Efficiency and Affordable Warmth

Scottish Borders Council are pleased to release the Draft Local Heat and Energy Efficiency Strategy (LHEES) and Delivery Plan for the region.

The strategy and delivery plan set out the long-term shared vision and proposed actions for improving energy efficiency and de-carbonising heat in our buildings across the local authority area.

Everyone has a role to play in order to achieve climate targets, and we have been working with partners, stakeholders, and property owners to develop the draft documents.

These documents will develop and be subject to change, and as part of the formal consultation process we are looking for your views on the content, including the vision and priorities for delivery.

The draft documents and appendices are available to download here:


The formal consultation is now open and will remain open until the 8th of March 2024. We have a dedicated webpage where you can access the Citizen Space survey: https://scotborders.citizenspace.com/housing/lhees_consult_2024/

If you have any questions or would like to discuss this further, then please email Neil.Robertson@scotborders.gov.uk.
