STAMFORD BRIDGE: Hundreds of homes are being targeted for a Green Deal pilot scheme that will enable homeowners to install a wide range of energy-efficient measures.
East Riding Council has secured funding to pilot the Government's flagship initiative in Stamford Bridge.
Under the scheme, the cost of efficiency measures is paid back over time through savings made on energy bills.
Nine-hundred homes in Stamford Bridge are to receive a letter offering a free assessment.

BEVERLEY: Workmen are patching Beverley Minster's roof to stop rainwater pouring through.
Scaffolding has been erected on the high roofs on the south side of the church to enable workmen to patch up holes.
Minster surveyor John English said: "We have got a lot of leaks coming through the lead covering. We are patching it up to stop the leaks. The ridges are worst affected, it's almost a continuous leak there.
"The water comes through and onto the roof timbers. It stops in the roof area but it comes onto the walkways and the timbers of the roof.
"If we don't patch it up, it will cause more damage. It's an ongoing problem."
According to previous estimates, some £6.7m is needed for renovation work at the church, including some £3m for roof repairs.
