One of the Council's priorities is to maintain and improve the fabric of homes in the private sector and to ensure our residents' homes are safe, fit and meet legislative standards.

If you want information on how we ensure that homes in the private sector meet the legislative standards, see our section on enforcement in the private sector.

This section concerns the various ways in which the Council helps vulnerable people who need repairs and adaptations carried out to their home.

Private sector housing repairs assistance

The Council sets aside part of its capital annual budget to assist private homeowners to maintain their property.

The following types of grant and loan are available.

The administration of our grant and loan scheme is carried out in partnership with Independent Home Solutions.
