The Net Zero Strategy sets out the Government’s commitments to enable local areas to deliver net zero. This includes establishing a Local Net Zero Forum to bring together national and local government senior officials to discuss policy and delivery options on net zero, and continuing the Local Net Zero Programme to support all local areas with their capability and capacity to meet net zero.

The Local Authority Delivery Scheme (LAD), which supports projects to install energy efficiency measures such as various types of insulation and low-carbon heating systems for low-income households, has already provided £500million to Local Authorities for upgrades to low-income households across England, and is being delivered up to June 2022 through a managed closure.
