Project 3 – Empty Properties and Vacant land into homes
Creating opportunities for reviving vacant land and empty properties
This project is all about creating opportunities for reviving vacant land and empty properties. If you are the owner of a property within the Vibrant and Viable Places area and your property has been empty for six months or more, you might be eligible for an interest free loan of up to £25,000.
This loan scheme is to help owners who have an empty property to bring the property back into residential use. This includes converting none residential properties into residential use (subject to granting planning permission).
The Loans are subject to an application fee of £295-£495 depending on the amount borrowed and will be repayable over 2-3 years. Land Registry and Companies House fees may also be payable.
In addition to the Loan, the Council may be able to help you find contractors and with scheduling works if required through our ‘Houseproud’ scheme. If you plan to let the property upon completion of the works, assistance to manage and let the property may also be available through our Local Lettings Agency.
If you think you might be eligible for a loan or you would like some more information, please email email@example.com.
Note: If you property is outside of the Vibrant and Viable Places we may still be able to assist through an alternative loan scheme. Please contact to discuss further.
