TOWN Hall chiefs are reviewing the council’s fuel poverty strategy as spiralling gas and electric prices could leave St Helens residents shivering this winter.

A final consultation is now underway into the St Helens fuel poverty strategy - so there’s still time for you to have your say.

Council bosses want to know what would most benefit you and your family to keep everyone warm this winter.

They currently provide insulation grants to help make homes warmer and more energy efficient.

Councillor Andy Bowden, St Helens Council’s cabinet member for urban regeneration and housing, said: “We aim to do all we can to reduce levels of fuel poverty across the borough. Our priorities will be to improve the range of preventative services and promote independence for older and vulnerable residents.”
