Stage 2 - How do I apply?

To make an application for Grant Approval, you must have obtained Confirmation of Eligibility under the scheme and the works must not have commenced.

 Before you begin, please make sure you have available:

  • Details of your engineer
  • The engineer's costs broken down into:
    • fees for the preparation of a remedial works plan
    • professional fees for oversight/inspection and certification
    • professional fees for appointment to a statutory health and safety role
  • Details of your contractor
  • The contractor's costs

and have the following ready for upload (in pdf format):


From your engineer:


a) The Remedial Works Plan for the relevant dwelling

b) An Inspection Plan

c) An itemised statement (quotation) for professional services in respect of supervision, oversight, health & safety and certification of the works

d) The Engineer's Stage 2 Declaration


From your contractor:

e) A Programme of Works detailed the proposed duration and sequencing of the works described in the remedial works plan

f) An itemised statement (quotation) specifying the cost of carrying out, supervising and certifying the works

g) The Contractor's Stage 2 Declaration


If you have all the above ready, you can log in and proceed to apply for Grant Approval.

When you have successfully submitted your application, the Council will check and assess it before making a decision. If approved, the Council will issue you with Confirmation of Grant Approval and will advise you how much of a grant you are eligible for.


You can start your application and add information, saving it as you go along. Any documents you are asked for are needed to assess the application. You do not have to provide them in one go but can add them as you receive them from the engineer or contractor. Ask them to provide these to you electronically, in PDF format. You can log out and log back in to add them. You cannot submit the application for assessment until you have filled in all the details and uploaded all the documents.
