A Housing Plus budget of £10,000 per area team was available to be used to enhance and sustain schemes and estates.
Action plans were developed to identify the need for financial support and outline how the monies would be spent. Individuals as well as schemes and estates were eligible to be considered in terms ofthe potential to improve quality of life.
Monies had been awarded for:
- small individual adaptations (under £500) such as over-bath showers for individual tenants not eligible to receive these adaptations through any other means; and
- community-wide projects such as Vineyard Vale's play area, match funded \/ia a grant from Pembrokeshire County Council's Capital Play Fund, and
- wheelie bin provision to remove the problem of litter on estates.
The Housing Plus fund helped to engage tenants at a community level and give support to their resident associations.
The allocation ofthe total budget (£40,000) between the four area teams was flexible.
