Homes in Town Grant


This grant is designed to encourage town centre living in the County Borough. The Homes in Towns Grant (HIT) forms part of Bridgend Council's overall approach to tackling vacant space in Bridgend Town Centre,  breathing life and vitality back into the town centre and increasing the supply of affordable accommodation.


The maximum grant amount is 85% of the cost, up to a maximum of £10,000, to create a separate access (if one is not already present) to the residential premises (or £150,000 for multiple units in one building); and 60% of the cost, up to a maximum of £30,000 per unit of accommodation, for the conversion of vacant space into a residential unit (or £150,000 for multiple units in one building).
