A property developer has been named the National Landlords' Association Green Property Woman 2010 for her commitment to sustainable cheap energy and efficiency.
Fiona MacAskill, who owns over 40 properties around Bristol, was given the accolade to acknowledge her work in implementing energy efficient alterations in her homes.
Ms MacAskill, who fought off competition from Elaine Stenson and Tracey Abbiss, installed a number of eco initiatives in her properties, such A-rated appliances, solar panels, eco boilers, cavity wall draught proofing and double glazing.
She also made sure that tenants were provided with recycling and compost bins and made to use time switches and heating thermostats.
Ms MacAskill told Home Move: "Not only do I try to introduce green fixtures, fittings and policies into my properties, but I try to carry this through to every aspect of my business, from recycling to paperless invoicing and only communicating via email or telephone."
The Energy Security and Green Economy Bill is set to be introduced this autumn with the aim of improving domestic and business energy efficiency and ensuring fair competition in energy markets.
