Hire of Thermal Imaging Camera
Submitted Thu, 20 Oct 2011 09:16
Getting Lutterworth Growing requests £500 in order to hire the Rural Community Council’s thermal imaging camera. It is the intention to organise a community event in February / March 2012 in conjunction with Lutterworth Town Council in order to generate local interest in energy saving. The camera can be used to find leaky spots in buildings where insulation or draught roofing would make a difference.
This project would support the following Sustainable Community Strategy themes:
• Supporting individuals and families
• Protecting our environment
• Improving our communities
Energy saving measures are being encouraged nationally and local communities are being urged to reduce their carbon footprint. This project would greatly assist families in Lutterworth to do just that and it is hoped that this project would encourage more residents to think about how they can improve their lives in a green and sustainable manner.
Lutterworth residents would be invited to attend two events; one to establish interest and to ascertain where there is the largest need in the town for the thermal imaging project to take place and a further event to present the results.
Education is to be provided to the local community as to how they may conserve energy within their homes.
Thermal Imaging Camera £150
Room Hire £50
Event Advertising £165
Promotional Material £120
EXISTING FUNDING £50
TOTAL REQUESTED £450
The project would be run entirely by volunteers i.e. Getting Lutterworth Growing and Lutterworth Town Councillors.
