Blackmill Estate

24 non traditional properties and 18 traditional properties received ARBED funding allowing them to benefit from structural repairs, new roofs, external wall insulation, air source heat pumps, solar photovoltaic panels, solar thermal hot water system, kitchen, bathroom and electrical re-wiring works.
