Homes in serious disrepair or in need of major adaptations can have an impact on home owners' or tenants' health and welfare. You may be eligible for a grant or a loan to help pay for repairs and adaptations.

Weymouth and Portland Borough Council have issued a Housing Strategy some of which is still in 'Draft' form.
