Local Authority Delivery (LAD)

Owing to unprecedented demand the LAD programme is now fully subscribed. Additional funding to extend the project is now being sought. We are currently working through all existing applications. Please accept our apologies for the delay if you have not already been contacted by our team. You will receive a written communication from us shortly.

If you have already applied, please do not fill in the online form again. We cannot accept multiple applications per household and duplicate applications will delay the progress of your original application.

For new enquiries, please do make an application if you are interested in the offer. Your application will be added to a waitlist and you will be contacted should the application for additional funding be successful.

What is the LAD Programme

Portsmouth City Council, in partnership with the local authorities shown below, has secured funding through the Green Homes Grant Local Authority Delivery Scheme (LAD) to offer funding to improve the energy efficiency of qualifying homes.

The LAD programme offers a variety of funded energy efficiency measures within the home. The programme focuses on the installation of Solid Wall Insulation (external or internal), Air Source Heat Pumps, Solar PV (which are a type of low carbon heating) and also Park Home insulation.

How the LAD Programme works

There is up to £10,000 of funding available per household for qualifying measures that improve the energy efficiency rating of a property. The programme has been set-up to provide funding for solid wall insulation and heat pumps but can also fund other energy efficiency improvements as a secondary measure. 

For rented properties, the landlord can receive up to £5,000 of funding and must contribute at least one-third of the total cost. Private rental tenants must have permission from their landlord prior to making an application or this will not be accepted. 

​This scheme is operating on a first-come, first-served basis and until September 2021 only, so be sure to get your application in early. Please note that owing to unprecedented demand it may take several weeks to arrange a survey and there is no guarantee that funding will be available at this time.
