General Information
To qualify for a grant, the applicant must be allowed by law to carry out the work or be obliged to pay for the work under the maintenance terms of a lease. All owners must consent in writing to the work being carried out for the benefit of their tenants.

Some grants will only be given at the Council’s discretion and only if there is adequate funding to meet demand.

The Council will require applicants to carry out grant work in such a way as to increase energy efficiency, wherever practicable.

The Council will attach conditions to grants and tell applicants what these conditions are before it gives an approval.

The Council will not accept grant applications from the owners or occupants of commercial premises, such as hotels or guest houses.
