The 2016 Fuel Poverty estimates, released by the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy at the end of last month are now available on Northamptonshire Analysis within the Fuel Poverty dataview.

The proportion of households affected by fuel poverty within Northamptonshire now stands at 10.4%, lower than the national average of 11.1% and heading downwards again after the rise of last year.   This equates to 30,777 households in fuel poverty across the county.   Amongst the county's districts and boroughs the proportion of households in fuel poverty ranges from 9.0% in South Northamptonshire to 11.1% in Wellingborough.

Eight Lower Super Output Areas in the county (LSOAs, small area geographies) have a fuel poverty rate of greater than 18%.   Of these, seven are found in Northampton and one in Wellingborough.   The LSOA with the greatest fuel poverty rate is Northampton 023B covering Colwyn Road, Cowper Street and Hunter Street (terraces near the Racecourse) which scores 19.2%.

As well as the usual dataview, please also see the spreadsheet showing National Fuel Poverty by Characteristic of Dwelling and Household which highlights those characteristics most affected by fuel poverty.   This spreadsheet is a timeseries running from 2011 to 2016.
