Warwickshire Community Oil/LPG Syndicate
latest news APRIL 2014
‘Warwickshire Community Oil & LPG Syndicate’ is rather a mouthful so have changed this to Energy Warwickshire with a dedicated website at www.energywarwickshire.org.uk. Anyone who is interested in cheaper oil can now both sign up and place an order at their own convenience. Thanks to the syndicate we have been able to reduce the price of bulk LPG from an already low 43pence per litre to just 41pence per litre with a £100 fuel discount for new domestic members. And when did you last pay less for your oil in the Winter than in the Summer? Well, that’s what our members have achieved over the last couple of months, paying just 51.95ppl in March and less than 50ppl in April. We don’t think we shall ever get to grips with how the pricing works but so long as it works in favour of our members we’ll not be too worried. Over the last 12 months our members have saved an average of over £52 per 1000 litres against the average market price and a whopping £142 against the market high. How does your oil supplier measure up? People power works!

Tredington Parish Housing Needs Survey - June 2013
Many thanks to all residents of the parish who took the time to complete the recent Housing Needs Survey. The Parish Council has now received a report on the findings of the survey, undertaken by Warwickshire Rural Communities Council (WRCC). Approximately 640 survey forms were delivered to homes in the parish and 216 completed forms were returned to WRCC. This is considered a good response for a survey of this type.
12 respondents expressed a need for alternative housing in the parish, indicating a current need for a range of housing including two and three bedroomed houses and bungalows provided as local market ownership housing and rented accommodation from a housing association. The respondents in housing need required accommodation in Tredington, Newbold-on-Stour, Blackwell and Armscote.
If you would like further information on the Housing Needs Survey, or your are a resident of the paish and would like to receive an electronic version of the full WRCC report, please contact the clerk (firstname.lastname@example.org). A paper copy of the report can be provided, but a charge will be made to cover printing and posting costs.
