As detailed in the recommendation.


Councillor Johnson introduced the report and explained that the portfolio operated eight communal heating schemes within Flintshire.  The Council negotiated fuel costs in advance and tenants benefitted from the Council’s Industrial and Commercial Contract rate.


            New communal heating charges were based on the previous year’s energy use ensuring an accurate assessment of costs and impacts (negative or positive) on the heating reserve account.


            The proposed recharges for 2021/22 were outlined in the report.  In the majority of cases, the recharge to tenants had reduced for 2021/22, which as in other years, would allow Flintshire to recover the projected costs of the heating charges whilst still passing on the benefit of reduced energy costs to tenants.




That the changes to the current heating charges at Council properties with communal heating schemes to take effect from 30th August be approved.
