The Private Sector Housing Service is responsible for delivering the Council’s Housing Renewal Assistance policy. The aim of the policy is to outline how the Council will target discretionary grant assistance for residents and landlords in the private housing sector. This includes assistance for owners and tenants for security measures and energy efficiency measures to improve health, safety and welfare. The policy also includes assistance for landlords to improve the energy efficiency of properties in the private rented sector and grants to bring long-term empty properties back into use.
The proposed policy will be in operation from July 2021 to March 2026. There are a number of changes proposed, including removing the means test requirement for all Disabled Facilities Grants where the works are under £10,000, stopping HMO grants for landlords and introducing a new Warm Home Grant to replace existing Warmer Cheaper Greener grants. The proposals take into account the ambitions of Camden 2025 and changes in legislation, since the last policy was launched.
For more information on all the proposed changes to the existing policy, this document shows the proposals.
