Identifying opportunities in your community

All areas are different. Your neighbourhood will have a unique mix of housing types, groups of people and local characteristics. Because different energy efficiency improvements (or combinations of improvements) are more appropriate in different circumstances, understanding your area is an important part of identifying opportunities in your community.

There are resources in PlanLoCaL which have been designed to help you understand the profile of your area and the potential for energy efficiency improvements. We have included guidance and activities on how to assess your local area and decide on the most suitable improvements.

What about community buildings, business premises or listed buildings within your community? There are resources to help you work with these, too.
