Welcome to the official website of Strete in Devon, England, which is managed by Strete Parish Council. Strete is about a fifteen minute drive from Dartmouth. It is to be found on the high coastal ground at the eastern end of Slapton Sands. It's a good place to stay if you like exploring the local beaches and is also convenient for Kingsbridge, Totnes and Salcombe. Strete is situated on the South West Coastal Footpath and, with a variety of accommodation in the village, it is an ideal location to take a break in your journey. Take time to relax and enjoy the beautiful AONB surroundings.
The scheme is being delivered by the Cosy Devon partnership who has secured nearly £10m of government funding to offer householders the chance to improve their homes by ensuring that they are warmer, less draughty, and less damp. Improvements will also reduce their energy bills and lower their home's carbon emissions. Many homes in Devon need substantial investment and the Cosy Devon partnership is committed to reducing Devon's domestic carbon footprint and lifting communities out of fuel poverty.
The scheme is available to Devon residents who have an annual combined household income of less than £30,000 and whose homes have an energy Performance Certificate rating of E, F or G. If you qualify, your home will have to be assessed to determine which energy efficiency measures could be installed. The initiative has a quality assurance plan in place to make sure that works are done correctly and deliver the benefits and savings expected.
Leader of Devon County Council John Hart said: "This scheme is an example of councils across Devon working in partnership to benefit the residents of Devon to help reduce the impact of the cost-of-living crises, lift low-income households out of fuel poverty and reduce carbon emissions".
South Hams District Council's Cllr Tom Holway, Executive Member for Climate Change and Biodiversity, said: "Doing what you can to save money is essential in these tough economic times so this scheme is perfect for our residents.
