Covid-19 – Private Sector Grant update
We continue to deal with the challenge of coronavirus (COVID 19) and are completing technical inspections as quickly as possible.
We were unable to carry out property inspections during the first lockdown (23 March – 26 June 2021) which led to a build-up of inspections. We thank you for your patience as we continue to work through these.
We are contacting customers to arrange appointments. We are also accepting new applications for grant aid.
