The results of the Imperial College London study, published last month, have encouraged the council to introduce further measures in the new budget 2013-14 to help residents be more energy efficient.

These include: A community litter clean-up programme, new allotments for two primary schools, subsidised compost bins for borough residents, a tree planting project and a new play park in Vicarage Lane, Seven Kings.

Councillor Shoaib Patel, cabinet member for environment, transportation and crime, said: “These figures show that Redbridge is making great progress and we are very proud of this achievement.

“Energy efficiency, along with recycling, sustainable travel and a host of other measures are all helping to make Redbridge a cleaner and greener place to live.”
