Perth and Kinross Local Heat & Energy Efficiency Strategy 2024-2045 Consultation

Closed 29 Oct 2023

Opened 10 Oct 2023

Results expected 15 Dec 2023


This consultation seeks your views on the draft vision, priorities and actions which will shape the first Perth and Kinross Local Heat and Energy Efficiency Strategy (LHEES) and accompanying 5-year Delivery Plan (2024-2029).  The Perth and Kinross LHEES is driven by Scotland’s overarching statutory targets for greenhouse gas emissions reduction and fuel poverty.

Net zero emissions by 2045 and 75% reduction by 2030. No household in Scotland is in fuel poverty by 2040

Why your views matter

The LHEES will cover the period 2024-2045, with an accompanying delivery plan focusing on 2024-2029. It sets out our vision for heat transition and energy efficiency in Perth and Kinross as well as the outcomes that we want to achieve for local people. We are required by the Scottish Government to have a LHEES and a Delivery Plan which is reviewed and updated every five years. You can download the document or view it below.

Following consultation with partners and stakeholders, we have now developed a draft LHEES vision with priorities for action. Before the final strategy is developed, we want to make sure that local people, communities and stakeholders have their say on whether these priorities will make a positive difference to meeting their needs.

Following this consultation, we plan to submit the draft LHEES strategy for formal approval by Perth and Kinross Council in November 2023.

The views of residents, the local community and stakeholders are crucial in ensuring that the new LHEES truly reflects the issues faced by local people and includes the correct priorities and actions to address these issues. In developing the LHEES, we have consulted with local stakeholders from an early stage and want to continue that process with residents and local community to make sure we get it right.

What happens next

The responses of this consultation will inform the draft LHEES strategy which will be submitted for formal approved by Perth & Kinross Council in November 2023.
