Examples of Redeveloped Properties
The Welsh Government have provided the Vale of Glamorgan Council with funding to transform vacant properties into homes, across the Vale of Glamorgan. Interest-free loans are available through the Houses into Homes and Home Improvement Loan schemes.
Welsh Government launched the Houses into Homes scheme in April 2012 and the Home Improvement Loan scheme in April 2015. Since the schemes have been in place, the Vale of Glamorgan Council has issued over £900,000 to loan applicants. This funding has resulted in empty properties being bought into use, which in turn has helped reach Welsh Governments targets.
The following are examples of applicants who have received funding through the schemes and have transformed long term empty properties into new homes.
The Old Fire Station, Court Road, Barry. This derelict building was empty for a number of years, but has now been transformed into 7 apartments and a coach house.
