Living Over The Shop (LOTS) Grant
Updated: 29 May 2015
The LOTS scheme was introduced to encourage people to live in properties over shops in certain areas of town centre regeneration. At present all regeneration areas are closed and therefore discretionary grants are only available in exceptional circumstances. Exceptional circumstances are deemed to exist where there is an imminent and significant risk to the occupier due to the condition of the dwelling. HMO grants are no longer available.
We do not want to raise expectations about the availability of grants or have people incur costs unnecessarily.
