Fuel Poverty

This data has been taken from LGInform http://lginform.local.gov.uk/ data reference ID 2131. The data ranges across 2011 to 2014.

The decent homes standard was established in 2001 and applies to all social housing. In order to be ‘decent’ a home should be warm, be in a reasonable state of repair and have reasonably modern facilities.

A household is said to be fuel poor if it needs to spend more than 10 per cent of its income on fuel to maintain an adequate standard of warmth. 12.8% of households in Plymouth are in fuel poverty. This proportion has risen since the previous year.

At the last Census (2011), 8.6% of houses in Plymouth were overcrowded, with one or more rooms too few. This compares to 8.7% of houses in England overall.
