Dundee City Council to consider boiler replacement programme
Councillors in Dundee will today be asked to approve the installation of new boilers in 71 council houses throughout the city.
Work to replace boilers will be carried out in Coldside, Lochee and Maryfield in the latest stage of the project.
The £278,021 worth of improvements will see the properties receive gas boiler renewals and associated works.
If approved, the replacement installations will run from March 2020 to May 2020.
The scheme previously saw more than 200 homes throughout the city benefit from replacement boilers in 2019.
Councillor Anne Rendall, convenor of the neighbourhood services committee, said: “We know from talking to our tenants that they like the reliability and efficiency of the boilers that we are fitting in their homes.
“This work, along with our efforts to improve the energy efficiency of our properties, means that tenants can be confident that they have efficient heating systems and spend less on heating their homes.”
