    4. Riverside Dene - Phases Recent ‘options appraisal’ carried out by council has recommended demolishment of the five remaining blocks. Due to cost.

    5. Monitoring 6th December 2009 to 10th March 2010. • Face to face interviews, accessing homes to gain insight into heating regimes using data loggers. • Referred cases of concern to YHN

    6. EFFECTS OF COLD ON HEALTH • Cold homes and ill health • Treatment of respiratory illness such as asthma and bronchitis imposes an enormous burden on health service resources. • A drop in body temperature causes the blood to thicken making circulation more difficult and contributing to heart disease and strokes • 18-24°C, no risk to sedentary, healthy people. • Below 16°C, diminished resistance to respiratory infections. • Below 12°C, increased blood pressure and viscosity. • Below 9°C, after 2 or more hours, deep body temperature falls. • Indoor environment is a source of health risk factor – most people spend more than 90% of time indoors

    7. Explanation: • Void Property was South Facing, • No curtains present = Solar Gain • Property was on 11th floor, benefiting from heated property below.
