Additional Exchequer contributions for houses in remote areas

9Remote area contributions

(1)Where the Secretary of State is satisfied that the total expenditure likely to be incurred in any year by a local authority, not being the town council of a large burgh, in providing housing accommodation by way of approved houses could not, in consequence of the remoteness of the sites of any of the houses from centres of supply of building labour and material, be met without charging unreasonably high rents for that accommodation and other accommodation provided by the authority or imposing an unreasonably heavy rate burden, the Secretary of State may, with the sanction of the Treasury, undertake to pay, and pay, for each year of a period of sixty years (in addition to any other Exchequer contribution) an Exchequer contribution of such amount, and in respect of such of the houses so provided, as he considers just and reasonable.

(2)Where housing accommodation is provided by a development corporation or a housing association, and is so provided by way of approved houses in pursuance of authorised arrangements made with a local authority to which Exchequer contributions under subsection (1) of this section are payable, the Secretary of State may, if he thinks fit having regard to the remoteness of the sites of any of the houses from centres of supply of building labour and material, pay in respect of any of the houses in any year (in addition to any other Exchequer contribution) an Exchequer contribution not exceeding the Exchequer contribution which would have been payable under this section in that year if the house had been provided by the local authority.

(3)Notwithstanding the provisions of subsections (1) and (2) of section 1 of this Act, and of section 12(1) thereof, references in this section to approved houses shall include (in addition to references to approved houses within the meaning of section 1 of this Act) references to approved houses within the meaning of Part I of the Housing and Town Development (Scotland) Act 1957 and references to approved houses within the meaning of the Housing (Scotland) Act 1962.
