There were a number of changes made to phase II of the RE:NEW programme compared to the roll-out phase.  They key changes included:

       More detailed analysis to ensure the areas selected had better potential for the insulation measures.  This was combined with enabling an element of delivery outside of the areas where there was strong demand.

       Making capital funding available to carry out enabling works e.g. for loft hatch widening without which the works would not have taken place

       Streamlining the reporting requirements and processes.

       Including additional contractual targets, and payments are linked to achievement of these targets to ensure the delivery agents focussing on installing more complex measures.
