Retrofit Brum

Engaging with tenants to improve the energy efficiency of their homes

Welcome to Retrofit Brum

The Social Housing Retrofit Project, which is funded by the Government is about making improvements to your home, so it becomes more energy efficient, by lower emissions, using less energy, improving ventilation and saving money on your fuel bills. Birmingham City Council has appointed ARK, as a partner, to deliver its Tenant and Resident Engagement activity. This activity is around engaging with yourself and other tenants in your area to discuss the energy-saving work being carried out by the contractors on your property.

There are nine initial schemes, some of which have started and others that will be rolled out across the city and your home and local area is in one of these schemes. ARK in partnership with Birmingham City Council will be organising a range of events over the forthcoming months so that you, your family, and neighbours have an opportunity to talk through and discuss what is involved.

Resident Survey

We want to ensure that you will get a chance to have a proper conversation with the ARK team and share your views and raise any questions. Ahead of our community engagement events we would like to give you the opportunity to complete a short survey to share your initial thoughts, feelings and any concerns. The survey will take you no longer than ten minutes to complete and will inform our future engagement with you.
