Status:

This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

67Local authority to approve certain applications for intermediate grants

(1)Subject to sections 57, 60, 65(2), 65(3) and 66 above, a local authority shall approve an application for an intermediate grant which is duly made in accordance with this Part of this Act.

(2)If an application for an intermediate grant is duly made in accordance with this Part of this Act and the relevant works consist solely of works which the applicant is required to carry out by an improvement notice served or an undertaking accepted under Part VIII of this Act,—

(a)subsections (3) to (5) of section 57 and sections 60 and 65(2) above shall not apply, and

(b)if it appears to the local authority to whom the application is made that, on completion of the relevant works, the dwelling concerned will not attain the full standard, they shall be treated as having exercised their powers under subsections (4) and (5) of section 66 above and, where appropriate, as being satisfied as mentioned in subsection (3) of that section, to such extent as is necessary to secure that on completion of the relevant works the dwelling will attain the reduced standard,

and subsection (1) above shall apply accordingly.

(3)Where the relevant works specified in an application for an intermediate grant include works of repair or replacement which go beyond those needed, in the opinion of the local authority, for the purposes of enabling the dwelling concerned to attain the full standard or the reduced standard, as the case may require, the local authority may, with the consent of the applicant, treat the application as varied so that the relevant works—

(a)are confined to works other than works of repair or replacement, or

(b)include only such works of repair or replacement as (taken with the rest of the relevant works) will secure, in the opinion of the local authority, that the dwelling will attain the full standard or the reduced standard as the case may require,

and may approve the application as so varied.

(4)In this section "the full standard" and "the reduced standard " have the same meanings as in section 66 above.
