Funded by the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) and supported by Reigate and Banstead Borough Council, Streets Ahead provides grant funding for Surrey’s residents who live in properties which are not suitable for cavity wall insulation.


Following a Green Deal Assessment of the home, arranged by Action Surrey, Mr Squibb was provided with recommendations of how to improve his home’s energy efficiency. He was delighted that he was predicted to save over £330 per year on his energy bills by installing solid wall insulation. Plus with the financial assistance from Streets Ahead he has only had to contribute just under two thirds of the cost for his installation.

With the support of Streets Ahead arranging his preferred installer to provide a suitable quote, he is now looking forward to the solid wall insulation reducing the level of heat being lost through his walls. he commented that the property was a period building, “the look of it is important. Having the insulation installed means that we do not have to maintain the original render”. Mr Squibb was also very pleased with the outcome of the install, commenting that it has resulted in “low energy use, low maintenance and a great look”.

There are still just under 400 grants still available for residents in Surrey, which recently have been increased from £3,500 to £5,000 per person, meaning that residents will now be contributing less towards the cost of their install. The Streets Ahead grant is not means or age tested, and is purely based on the construction of your home and on the basis that 50% of the walls which are suitable for solid wall insulation are insulated.
