Suffolk pub awarded BEE Anglia grant to improve energy efficiency

The Brook Inn in Copdock & Washbrook, a community-owned free house, has recently been awarded grant funding from the Business Energy Efficiency Anglia (BEE Anglia) project for cavity wall and roof insulation plus window and door double-glazing.

Ian Evans, Director, The Brook Inn, said: “We expect to save around 20-25% on our energy bills following grant funding from BEE Anglia.  Thanks on behalf of Directors, Shareholders and customers of The Brook Inn who will benefit greatly from this work”.

Following an independent energy audit, The Brook Inn successfully applied for a grant of £2,500. The energy savings gained by implementing this project will amount to 9 tonnes of CO2e per year, plus cost savings of £1,700. This will support future growth within their business, while working to protect our environment in line with their environmental policy.

Cllr. Matthew Hicks, Cabinet Member for Environment and Public Protection, Suffolk County Council, said: “I am delight that we have been able to support The Brook Inn to enhance their sustainability – both economically and environmentally. The independent audits have given them the assurance that these savings will be achieved.”

The BEE Anglia project is funded by the European Regional Development Fund and is being delivered across the region through a partnership of Suffolk County Council, Norfolk County Council, Groundwork and NWES.
