We have collated the following resources to help our residents, businesses and partners understand and realise the socio-economic opportunities retrofit brings to South London.

The South London Retrofit Skills Opportunity

As part of our development of the South London Retrofit Skills Action Plan (January 2024) we identified the scale of opportunity retrofit brings to South London, the priority trades required to retrofit our 635,000 properties and the 13,000 SMEs central to this delivery.
