£2 million of funding has been won by a Cambridgeshire renewable district heating project.

The funding is for the Heating Swaffham Prior project, which was awarded the grant by BEIS and is designed to provide sustainable heating to homes in East Cambridgeshire.

A village will get a ground source heat pump which will supply it with hot water and heating so that homes can stop relying on fossil fuel-powered boilers.

Within the village a total of 166 out of 300 households have already expressed their interest in joining the renewable heating network.

The heat project is an initiative driven by Cambridgeshire County Council and the Swaffham Prior Community Land Trust and has been under development since 2017.

Chairman of Cambridgeshire County Council’s Environment and Sustainability Committee, Joshua Schumann said: “This is a fantastic project and a first of its kind that we know of in the country. Retrofitting a whole village is a challenge.”
