The council regularly receives requests from homeowners asking for permission to disconnect from the district heating system as they want to install their own heating system. Unfortunately, in the majority of situations, we're unable to give permission.
We've written a factsheet (PDF, 178kb) for all of our homeowners who are connected to a district heating system. It explains how our district heating systems work, and why in most circumstances, it's the better option. At this time, the council will not usually allow leaseholders to disconnect from their district heating system.
