The scheme, which is funded by the Snowdonia National Park Authority, offers grants to qualifying first time buyers up to a maximum of £25,000 towards the cost of necessary works to bring the property up to an acceptable standard. In order to be eligible, the property must be located within the National Park of Conwy, have been empty for at least 6 months, and sit within Council Tax valuation bands A, B or C.

The scheme is open to first time buyers who are looking to buy an empty property, or have purchased one but not moved in because works are required. In addition, applicants must have a local connection to the National Park area of Conwy.

This grant is no longer available. If you are thinking of buying an empty property in the Snowdonia National Park area or if you have already bought an empty property in the Snowdonia National Park area, please contact the Empty Homes Officer on 01492 574235 / housingstrategy@conwy.gov.uk
