A PORTISHEAD-BASED housing association has been named one of the most green in the UK.

Alliance Homes won a sustainable social housing award at the Inside Housing awards ceremony in London which was presented by explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes.

The organisation was given the accolade in recognition of the work it has carried out to set up and share with other landlords the benefits of using photovoltaic solar panels for both tenants and the business.

The judges said: “This project has succeeded at an impressive scale. We were also very impressed that they did all the due diligence themselves.”
