Abstract

So much has been spoken and written about the original Kirklees Warm Zone Project (2007-2010) that it is hard to separate fact from fiction. Yet the Kirklees model is increasingly invoked as an example of best practice for local authorities to follow in tackling fuel poverty. The Kirklees Warm Zone Project team have written many accounts – technical, financial, and householder-focused – that offer valuable insights into how the Project was run. Keyworkers also have valuable collective memories, some of which remains undocumented.In February 2011, having read many of the written accounts, researchers from the University of Ulster in Northern Ireland spent time with the 3 Key Officers who managed the Kirklees Project from its earliest inception. Sections 1 and 3 of this report distil some of their comments and reflections. Section 2 presents a formal cost-benefit analysis of the project and its estimated impacts on the well-being of Kirklees residents.
