The ‘Renovate Your Home’ scheme, which was orchestrated by the Building and Construction Authority, is expected to kick off a new round after its first iteration proved super successful.
The scheme, which was launched a few weeks ago, has the aim of renovating residential houses and private properties in the Grand Harbour to make them more sustainable when it comes to energy.
Chief Executive of the BCA Karl Azzopardi told ONE News that there had been 100 applications, and that the set amount of €600,000 was exceeded. He revealed that a new scheme will be released.
This new scheme will give the opportunity to those who did not manage to benefit from the scheme to do so as they will be given first preference. A waiting list will be created as it shows that there is an appetite for such projects.
Due to the several applications which were sent in, many different works around Cottonera and the Grand Harbour area will begin. Minister for Planning and Construction Stefan Zrinzo Azzopardi expressed satisfaction with the project’s success.
He said that through it, a number of families living in the area’s deeper zones will be benefiting immensely, both financially as well as culturally and sustainably.
