Draft Fuel Poverty Strategy 2023-2028 Consultation

Stoke-on-Trent City Council has developed a draft Fuel Poverty Strategy 2023-2028.

The draft Fuel Poverty Strategy sets out the council’s ambitions and priorities to tackle fuel poverty in the city over the next five years.

The council is now consulting with residents and partners to ensure that the draft strategy contains the right focus and commitments.


The draft Fuel Poverty Strategy 2023-2028 has identified four strategic objectives to help combat fuel poverty:

  1. Help people to reduce their energy bills
  2. Improve household energy efficiencies to reduce cold related illness
  3. Maximise household incomes
  4. Increase renewable energies to reduce our carbon emissions

With energy costs continuing to rise, more of our residents will fall into fuel poverty unless the root causes are addressed. It follows that helping our city’s residents to have healthy, energy efficient and warm homes is one of the council’s highest priorities.

The consultation runs for five weeks, from Wednesday 20 September to Wednesday 25 October 2023.
