Disabled Facilities

This section provides information on the different types of grants and loans that are available, subject to funds.

The Private Sector Housing Policy policy sets out the support and assistance offered by the Council to residents to improve and maintain their homes. To view the new policy, please click on the link on the right of this page. If you would like further information, please contact the Private Sector Housing Officer on 01635 519363.

As part of the consultation for the policy, we held a series of focus groups with local people to find out how we can improve the service further. These groups were very helpful and have resulted in a number of changes and actions. On the right of this page is a summary of the feedback from the focus groups and the actions that we are taking to improve the service.
