Purchase of a new energy efficient appliance

Any householder who buys a new device or appliance which is on the list above can submit a receipt for the replacement to the Trust who will make a retrospective payment towards the purchase of the appliance.

Only one application for support can be made by a household within a 12 month period.  The device purchased must be used exclusively within a primary residence within the Parish. The applicant must agree not to sell on the device for a period of a year.  Whilst the choice of the appliance is entirely a matter for the householder the Trust encourages that significant weight is given to purchasing a device which is highly efficient. (“A” rating wherever possible).

Repair of an existing appliance

The Trust does not want to encourage replacement of appliances where repair may be a better option both from the point of view of householders and the environment. Therefore the Trust will pay the cost of the repair up to a maximum £100.

Please Note: This scheme is planned to run for at least 3 years to avoid the need to bring forward planned replacement of a serviceable domestic appliance.

Case Study : Jane bought a new washing machine and completed a Domestic Appliance Scheme grant application.

“Just  a short note to say the £100 domestic appliance grant that we have recently received (and very promptly I must say) is much appreciated. Please pass on my thanks to the Trust.”
