Carbon Neutral Cambridge
Carbon Neutral Cambridge has undertaken some work to create heatmaps and detailed postcode maps showing the areas of the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority that have concentrations of homes with either “poor” or “very poor” loft insulation, or uninsulated or partially insulated cavity walls.

The top 21 'hotspot' villages identified in South Cambridgeshire are: Bar Hill; Bassingbourn; Caldecote; Cambourne; Duxford; Fen Ditton; Fen Drayton; Foxton; Girton; Great and Little Shelford; Hardwick; Hauxton; Histon; Linton; Melbourn; Milton; Over; Sawston; Stow cum Quy; Teversham; and Waterbeach.
