Town Centre Sites
£500,000 of Town Centre Living fund will support ongoing work aimed at improving the sustainability and vibrancy of our town centres by encouraging the refurbishment of empty properties and providing homes for our communities.
The fund aims to enable projects which meet local housing need and wider regeneration outcomes.
Applications can be submitted by registered charities, community groups, private developers who are taking forward projects supported through Scottish Government initiatives and Registered Social Landlords who are taking forward projects to deliver affordable housing.
We will consider funding for a range of proposals including community engagement, feasibility studies, design development and physical works. Applications will be assessed on their ability to deliver a number of priorities:
- contributing to regenerating town centres
- increasing the supply of affordable housing
- bringing empty properties back into use
All applications will be determined by the Council's Communities Committee on an individual basis because of their strategic importance.
How to apply
Grant applications will be accepted, and assessed, throughout the year. However, the Town Centre Living Fund operates within budgets and the scheme may close to new applications if it becomes over-subscribed.
What happens next
We'll acknowledge all applications and get in touch to let you know when we've reached a decision or discuss the proposal further if needed.
