Quite a few residents have been in touch with Harrogate Borough Council (HBC) about a letter which has been landing on door mats across our area in the last month.
The letter concerns a ‘green homes grant’ and features a logo which looks suspiciously like the Harrogate Borough Council logo–shown above. An 01423 number to call suggests it could be official. It isn’t.
In fact, the letter is from a private company in Rochdale. It doesn’t break any laws.
However, you can get access to the green homes grant without the need to use a third-party organisation which may charge you a fee.
You can find out more information about the financial help available to improve the energy efficiency of your home – and check your eligibility – on the government’s website
