04/01/2018 - Regeneration Fund for Bangor and Caernarfon Centre Buildings

Gwynedd Council has established a £850,000 fund to renovate buildings located in the Bangor city centre area and Caernarfon town centre.

This follows the Council’s successful bid from the Welsh Government’s Vibrant and Viable Places Town Centre Loans Fund. The scheme extends the fund that has been in place for Caernarfon town centre since November 2015 with a number of property owners using loans to improve the condition of buildings in the area.

As part of the scheme, property owners can submit bids to the loans fund for completing improvements to properties for long term ownership, to sell, to let, or to make use of an empty site. Improvements can include making residential properties safe, warm or more secure.

A spokesperson from Gwynedd Council said:

“We’re delighted that we have been able to secure funding for the loans fund. As a Council, we have been working closely with partners over the years to ensure the regeneration of these areas, and these loans will certainly have a positive impact, and allow businesses and residents to improve and renovate buildings in the Bangor and Caernarfon centre areas.

“It is also great news that the fund works on a recyclable basis which means that once the money is repaid, it will be used again to fund new loans. We would urge anyone who believes they may be eligible to contact the Council’s business support team, and officers will be on-hand to advise you about the fund.”

The loan may not be used to refund other loans. There is no interest on the loan, however, a fee is payable for legal and administrative costs.
