Private Sector Housing and Regeneration Assistance Policy 2011/2012 Amendment

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


A report by the Acting Director of Regeneration, Housing and Planning sought the Cabinet’s approval to an amendment of the Council’s 2011/12 Private Sector Housing and Regeneration Assistance Policy (referred to as “the Assistance Policy”). The Policy had been agreed by the Cabinet on 13 October 2011.  (Minute No. 164 refers)  This Assistance Policy was provided using statutory powers.  The approved amendment would be implemented with immediate effect.


The amendment was to the grant award conditions of the Cosy Homes Insulation Programme (section 5.3 of the Assistance Policy).  The change would allow the Council to meet the cost of customer financial contributions in situations where the maximum loft or wall area under the current Conditions was exceeded which would enable more effective marketing of the Programme.




That the Cabinet agrees to amend the Private Sector Housing and Regeneration Assistance Policy in order that Cosy Homes Insulation grants can be offered free-of-charge to all technically suitable owner occupied and private rented households and that it is implemented with immediate effect.
