What our members say

Read how we have worked with our members to the benefit of their tenants.

Taunton Deane Borough Council and West Somerset District Council

Without the help of David Greensmith and The CSA, Taunton Deane Borough Council would have found it difficult to realise our long held vision to install External Wall Insulation and Photovoltaics to existing council housing stock.

We are committed to reducing electricity and heating bills for tenants and The CSA have helped us achieve this by guiding us through the process of accessing frameworks, carrying out tenders and sourcing consultants.

As a result of David’s support, we are now able to help over 400 households save money on their electricity bills, live in warmer homes, displace carbon from the atmosphere and secure an income via the Feed In Tariff.

Aster Property

The CSA has supported Aster with the following:

  • EWI framework - The CSA EWI framework was accessed to speed up the procurement exercise that has now seen 27 properties fitted with EWI in Somerset. The framework helped Aster source competent Green Deal approved contractors who in turn have allowed Aster to access further Eco funds without having to undertake a formal procurement exercise as some preliminary work was already undertaken as a result of using the OJEU compliant framework.
  • Accessed PV framework via Alliance Homes providning clear benefits to Aster - savings, procurement, staff time savings.
