Improvement Works in lieu of Local Authority Housing
We may repair, improve or extend existing homes for approved housing applicants instead of housing them in one of our homes. It should be clearly understood that the scheme relates to private houses only and is subject to funding availability. The house must be owned and occupied by a family member and you must be accepted as needing housing from us. Works carried out will result in you being housed in the altered home and your name will be removed from our housing list. You do not have to be living in the house at the time of application, but the house does have to be owned by a member of your family.

The scheme applies to approved housing applicants who are within the top 100 positions of the housing list at the time of applying and is subject to funding availability.
