Empty Homes Grants


The Empty Homes Grant forms part of Bridgend Council's overall approach to tackling empty properties in the Borough and will assist in increasing the supply of affordable rented accommodation.  The Council will determine the works necessary to bring a property back into use, in consultation with the Public Protection Department.


The maximum grant amount is £15,000 or 75% of the eligible costs, whichever is the lesser amount. It will include all costs for eligible works, specialist reports and preliminary and ancillary charges. Works must not have commenced before the application is approved, and must be completed within 6 months of the approval.
