To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, how many applications from local authorities were rejected due to the Local Authority Deliver scheme for (a) Phase 1a and (b) Phase 1b being oversubscribed.
1 March 2021
Phase 1A of the Green House Grant Local Authority Delivery Scheme was not over-subscribed – although some applications were rejected which did not meet the eligibility criteria for the scheme or where the deliverability or value for money assessment did not meet the required standard.
Phase 1B was over-subscribed. We assessed all applications according to the same criteria and eligibility requirements. This resulted in 23 bids not being successful – 17 because they did not meet the eligibility criteria for the scheme.
