Has anyone, or does anybody know of someone who has disconnected their house from one of Southwark's communal heating systems?

If so, how long / complicated was the process and how much did it cost?

It has been done - Southwark Council views it as a money earner, so charges an arm and a leg (you should think in multiples of útens of thousands) to disconnect even though the real change/cost is next to nothing.

You can successfully fight it though.

Dear Iskiff

Did you successfully fight it? Or know someone who has? A group of homeowners on our estate are thinking of disconnecting because of the high bills and constant breakdowns from Southwark Council's district heating. It would be great to hear how much they paid to disconnect.

Any info would be marvellous and helpful.

it's not easy, but it's possible. Also, could be costly.

best wishes,
