Plans to use energy from a crematorium to heat a council swimming pool have been approved.
Redditch Borough Council voted in favour of plans to heat Abbey Stadium Leisure Centre using energy from the town’s crematorium. The council said it would result in savings of £14,560 a year. Unison leaders had called the idea “sick”.
Strange that the unions call it “sick”, but perhaps that is just the populist view. I think it is a wonderful idea, contributing to the Local Authority a substantial cash saving and a corresponding reduction in carbon emissions.
Scaled nationally that is clearly an impressive advantage and surely the way to go, in more ways than one!
