Government Failure - green homes scheme branded as a ‘slam dunk fail’
This is a savage indictment of inefficient policymaking, The Green Homes Scheme was intended to be a flagship scheme to foster environmentally-friendly home improvement.
The net result: the grants only upgraded about 47,500 homes out of the 600,000 originally planned. They also delivered a small fraction of the expected jobs.
The cost? According to the article: "a total of £50m or 16% of the total spend of £314m. This was a fraction of the £1.5bn budget promised to upgrade 600,000 homes. The scheme began operation in September 2020 but scrapped 6 months later.
Government failure, anyone?
