£8 Million Available through Private Sector Housing Grant for Glasgow
Statistics show that 64% of homes in Glasgow are privately owned and it is this stock that has the highest levels of disrepair of anywhere in the city.
This is particularly true amongst the 70,000 pre-1919 tenements. Council investment is crucial to preventing the decline, and even the demolition, of such older properties.
The purpose of this programme is to help improve private housing in the city of Glasgow. It is anticipated that the programme will help to ensure that Glasgow residents are living in quality housing within thriving neighbourhoods where regeneration is supported and energy efficiency is improved.
There is a total of £8 million within this grant programme which is open to private property owners who are based within Glasgow. This programme may fund expenditure such as the following:
- Disabled adaptations
- Lead pipe replacements
- Support for maintenance that would allow energy efficiency measures such as wall insulation.
This is an annual fund that will be subject to available funding. As a rough guide, funding will normally be considered and allocated during April. Before beginning the application process, interested parties should first speak to an advisor.
