Applicants must have been in continuous work for at least a year to qualify for the scheme. They must also live or work in the city or have family living in the Potteries. Applicants must have a maximum income of £27,000-a-year if single, up to £33,000 if single with children, up to £54,000 for a couple, or a maximum of £60,000 for a two-parent family."It helps to regenerate rundown parts of the city – adding to a sense of community for residents and helping to tackle social issues.” Existing residents have welcomed the scheme. One of the properties in the new scheme is in Rutland Street. The Portland Street houses in the first scheme were bought up under the Renew North Staffordshire project and were due to be demolished and replaced with new properties. But Renew was abolished before any homes could be built. Civil servant Gavin Pierpoint, aged 29, who was one of the first £1 homeowners, said: “Improvements to the surrounding area have been brought about because of the scheme.”
