How energy efficient is local housing?
28% of houses in Hartley have no cavity wall insulation making it only 19th out of the 26 wards. For Ash it was 26% (17th) and Fawkham and West Kingsdown 13% (2nd).
Again Hartley was in the bottom half of the district when it came to houses without loft insulation. 8% of houses have 'empty lofts' placing Hartley 17th out of 26 wards. The figures for Fawkham were 11% (24th) and Ash 6% (14th).
The sources were the census and statistics gathered by local authorities and the Energy Saving Trust between 1999 and 2004. Data coverage for Hartley and Hodsoll Street was good, that for Ash and Fawkham is poor.
