Many of our homes across the area are old, and not very energy efficient, and it can be frustrating to feel as though your heat is having little benefit. Understanding the best way to improve older homes can be confusing. Who to talk to? Who best to do the work? Does planning need to be involved? This is particularly true of the area’s 300+ Bedford Cottages.
TEC is working with Tavistock Town Council, West Devon Borough Council and the Tavistock Heritage Initiative on an innovative project to understand the best ways of enhancing the Bedford Cottages across the area to make them more comfortable and reduce heating costs.
If you live in a Bedford Cottage we’d like to invite you to complete our Warmer Bedford Homes survey. The links here.
We’d also love to hear from you. Contact Andy Coulson by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0800-233-5414 to find out more.
Here’s a document to download to learn more about the project.

An overall goal for this initiative is to enable cost effective enhancement of older homes in Tavistock and wider area.
