Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)
These Regulations amend the Form set out in the Schedule to the Relocation Grants (Form of Application) Regulations 1997 to be used for an application for relocation grant payable under sections 131 to 140 of the Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996.
The Relocation Grants Regulations 1997 (S.I. 1997/2764), apply the Housing Renewal Grants Regulations 1996 (S.I. 1996/2890) as they have effect from time to time, with the modifications prescribed. Amendments to the Housing Renewal Grants Regulations 1996 by the Housing Renewal Grants (Amendment) (England) Regulations 1999 (S.I. 1999/2568) have necessitated amendments to the Relocation Grants (Form of Application) Regulations 1997, and these Regulations make the necessary amendments.
