Green team

Here to help you go greener

The Basingstoke and Deane Green Team supports residents and organisations to go further to cut their emissions and become more sustainable as they play their part to help tackle the climate emergency.

One of the first of its kind in the country, the team heads out into communities to speak to people on their doorsteps and attend events to give advice on topics including how to:

  • save money and cut carbon by using less energy, including offering residents a free home energy survey
  • travel in greener ways to make our air cleaner
  • nurture gardens and green spaces so they are friendlier for wildlife
  • buy less and reuse and repair more

Members of the Green Team will always show their council identification card on the doorstep. Residents who want to check if someone is part of the team should call the council on 01256 844844.

Save money on your bills and cut carbon with a free home energy survey

Our team’s free home energy surveys aim to help residents keep their homes warm, save money on their energy bills and cut their carbon footprints, all at the same time.

Taking around an hour to complete, the surveys help create a report about how people can reduce the energy it takes to heat and power their home. This includes information about grants that could partly or fully pay for energy-saving home improvements.

If you live in a home that’s older, in a conservation area or generally more difficult to make energy efficient, there may be more specialist help available too if you’re eligible for one of our more in-depth comprehensive full-home assessments.
