Disabled Facilities Grant (Conditions relating to approval or payment of Grant) General Consent 2008

This general consent enables a local authority to place a limited charge on a property of an owner-occupier.  When appropriate a local authority would be able to decide to place a limited charge against an adapted property. 

The placing of charges will be at the discretion of each local authority and should be determined on an individual basis reflecting the particular circumstances of each applicant.  Local authorities are best placed to determine where the imposition of a charge could cause hardship or where due to the sensitivities of a case, the charge should be waived.
