Great British Refurb petition

New campaign petition launched

We need your voice again. In the first year of the Great British Refurb campaign the Government responded positively to your demands for a national programme of home eco-retrofit and a financing mechanism to help householders install low carbon upgrades.

While there has been good progress there is still much to be done. We are asking you to use your voice again as we launch a new petition at Grand Designs Live. The campaign is calling on Government to introduce financial incentives for energy efficient home refurbishment, such as council tax rebates, changes to stamp duty and reduced VAT on the costs of refurb.

Please show your support for the campaign by forwarding this email onto friends, family and colleagues and ask them to sign our latest petition by joining the campaign.

Visit us at Grand Designs Live 1st - 9th May

The campaign has a stand at Grand Designs Live this year and with the help of campaign’s spokesman, Kevin McCloud, we are running several ‘Big Debates’ and smaller seminar sessions to help homeowners make sense of the green home agenda.

Visit the website to find out when the Big Debates and ‘How to...’ seminars are taking place.

As a campaign supporter, you can take advantage of an exclusive discounted ticket offer to visit Grand Designs Live which is taking place at ExCel London from 1 – 9 May 2010.
