Resource and legal implications:

These works will be carried out within the provisions of the HRA Major Repairs Allowance Capital budget for 2003/04 and under the Council’s Policy for Disabled Adaptations to Council (Managed) Properties.
_______________________________________________________________________

1. Within the HRA Major Repairs Allowance Capital budget for 2003/04 money has been identified to carry out adaptations to properties where an occupant is disabled.

2. The Surrey County Council Occupational Therapist advises the Council on what disabled adaptations are necessary and appropriate for the individual with the disability within the context of the family and home environment. The Council is following their recommendations in both of the cases below.

3. In addition, officers have considered, under the Council’s Policy for Disabled Adaptations to Council (Managed) Properties, whether it is reasonable or practicable to carry out these recommendations. The officers consider the size of the property in relation to the medium and long-term family needs, the possibility of re-letting the property with such adaptations, whether the tenant in the property is in rent arrears and whether they or their family are in breach of any other tenancy conditions, such as anti-social behaviour. Officers are satisfied that it is reasonable and practicable under the Council’s policy to carry out the applications for disabled adaptations referred to in this report.

4. Two requests for major adaptations have been identified where substantial alterations and extension are required in order to provide the facilities necessary for the disabled occupants and their families. The extent of the work required necessitates planning permission being obtained. The details of these extensions are as follows: a) 33 Amberley Road, Milford - ground floor extension and alterations to a house to provide wheelchair accessible ground floor bedroom, shower room and living accommodation.

b) 7 Milford Lodge, Milford - ground floor extension to a bungalow to provide walker accessible bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and living accommodation.

5. Copies of the plans showing the work to both properties will be displayed prior to the meeting. The estimated cost of the disabled adaptations to these properties is set out at (Exempt) Annexe 1.

Recommendation

It is recommended that a first resolution in accordance with the Regulation 3 of the Town and Country Planning Act (General) Regulations 1992 be made to allow planning applications to be submitted for the extensions proposed at 33 Amberley Road and 7 Milford Lodge, Milford.
