Westville has just started work on insulating up to 101 properties in Walker Avenue, Stanley Avenue, Redfern Avenue and Fletcher Street in Ripley, on behalf of Amber Valley Borough Council, as part of a £1.2m government Green Homes Grant scheme.

It follows the recent completion of external wall insulation, loft insulation and cavity wall insulation on 68 properties in Ironville, also on behalf of the council, in a £640,000 project.

The aim is to make homes more energy-efficient, cut bills and improve health.
