(1)In approving an application for a grant a local authority may require as a condition of paying the grant that the relevant works are carried out within such time, not being less than 12 months, as the authority may specify or such further time as they may allow.

(2)Where a local authority are satisfied under section 63(3), section 68(2), section 70(3) or section 72(2) above that the relevant works cannot be or could not have been carried out without the carrying out of additional works, they may, without prejudice to subsection (1) above, allow further time as the time within which the relevant works and the additional works are to be carried out.

(3)A grant may be paid after the completion of the works towards the cost of which it is payable or part of it may be paid in instalments as the works progress and the balance after the completion of the works.

(4)Where a grant is paid in instalments the aggregate of the instalments paid shall not at any time before the completion of the works exceed one half of the aggregate cost of the works executed up to that time.

(5)The payment of a grant or of any part thereof shall be conditional upon the works or the corresponding part of the works being executed to the satisfaction of the local authority.

(6)If an instalment of a grant is paid before the completion of the works and the works are not completed within the time specified in subsection (7) below, that instalment and any further sums paid by the local authority as part of the grant shall, on being demanded by the authority, forthwith become repayable to them by the person who made the application for the grant or his personal representatives and shall carry interest from the date on which it was paid until repayment at the rate for the time being fixed by subsection (2) of section 171 of the Local Government Act 1972 for the purposes of the enactments specified in subsection (1) of that section.
