Home Improvement Projects improvements

If you rent your home and apply to your local authority for a disabled facilities grant, you’ll need to get your landlord’s permission before your local authority will agree to help you. However, your landlord must not refuse permission without a very good reason. If you need to make changes to your home because of your disability, your landlord should agree to this unless they have a good reason for not doing so. If your landlord doesn’t agree, this could be disability discrimination and they could be breaking the law.

  • Your letter of permission will say if fixtures and fittings you have installed can be removed when you move out.
  • Separate to our improvement scheme, we’ll soon be working on the bridges that carry Stuppington Road, Wells Lane and Hunt Kennels over the M2 between junctions 5 and 6.
  • However if the property is in defects, these, or any other improvements, are not allowed.

It will have its own rules about the types of help it will offer, and about the conditions you must meet in order to qualify for help. An upgrade to Arle Court Park and Ride and improvements at the A38/A4019 Coombe Hill Junction were also included as part of the package of improvements funded by Homes England. We have decided to take these elements forward separately in order accelerate their delivery.

Virtual Public Inquiry Announced

Today we welcomed the Secretary of State for Transport’s decision to approve our proposed improvements for M2 junction 5 Stockbury Interchange. For more information about a landlord’s duty to make alterations for disabled people, see Discrimination in housing. Generally, a local authority does not have to pay a grant or loan within any particular time limit. However, if your local authority’s own rules set a time limit, it must pay you within this time limit. A local authority can offer different types of help with home improvements.

Improving quality is about making health care safe, effective, patient-centred, timely, efficient and equitable. It’s about giving the people closest to problems affecting care quality the time, permission, skills and resources they need to solve them. In the history of the NHS, there has never been a greater focus on improving the quality of health services.

All updates, including progress of our scheme, will be provided on this webpage. You can also follow us on our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts or sign up for email alerts using the link on the right of this page. Once we are aware your improvement is complete, a surveyor will inspect it to ensure it is up to standard. This will include compliance requirements and a form at the bottom of the letter. Please select an area to find out what is allowed and what will need permission. When a property is newly built, it is said to be within a “defects” period.
