There are reports that the Green Homes Grant will be scrapped in March, following months of unrest from homeowners and industry. And against a backdrop of budget cuts, administrative problems and tradespeople awaiting payment, there are varying views on what should happen next. 

The current situation is a shame because the Green Homes Grant was welcomed upon its launch in September 2020 for helping to green up housing stock. There were fears the initial deadline of 31 March 2021 was too short, but this was ratified through an extension until March 2022 to give more homeowners time to complete their improvements.
