Town Centre Sites

£500,000 from the 2024/25 Town Centre Living Fund has been allocated to provide ongoing work aimed at improving the sustainability and vibrancy of our town centres by encouraging the refurbishment of empty properties, repurposing of derelict sites 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 works that enables development including surveys, site clearance and infrastructure provision. 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 Economy and Resources 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.
