Still no grants for Melhuish property 13th August 1971

Still no grantsAn attempt to obtain improvement grants for a number of Appledore properties under the Government's extended scheme has failed.  Now the matter may be taken up by Mr Peter Mills, M.P.

Mr Alan Gardner (Clerk of Northam Urban Council said that when the Government announced the higher grants that could be given in development areas the Minister for Housing and Construction, Mr Julian Amery, sent personal letters to the heads of all local authorities in such areas impressing upon them the need to encourage people to apply for grants and so make extra work for people in their districts.  Chairman of Northam Council (Mr R Evers) took up with the Minister the problem in this area of the Melhuish property for which grants could not be paid because the occupiers had not adequate title.
