Register interest in becoming a comfort scheme

Comfort Scheme grants will be considered where there is currently a lack of public convenience provision and there is not already a facility nearby operated by The Highland Council or Comfort Scheme provider.

Grants range from £50-£300 per month on a 7 or 12 month basis and are offered as a contribution towards the running costs of the toilets.

The rate of grant is worked out using the scoring matrix and is based on the provision of facilities offered to the public.

Scoring matrix available on request.

The agreements are valid for 3 years and will be reviewed towards the end of the contract period.

Legal Agreements available on application.
