Group Repair Scheme
A Group Repair Scheme is designed to improve the external look and condition of a group of properties. It includes works to the commercial parts of premises, including shop fronts.
Group Repair is limited to a specific area of Birkenhead and only owners of properties located in this area are eligible for the scheme.
Applications for inclusion in a scheme will be subject to a test of financial resources.
The maximum contribution payable by a participant in a Group Repair Scheme is 25% of the cost of the works proposed by the Council.
The costs of the works less any contribution made have to be repaid to the Council if the property is sold within three years.
However, the repayment is reduced by a third for each year following the scheme completion.
Wirral’s Group Repair scheme is in the Triangles neighbourhood in Birkenhead.
