What is intermediate housing?

Intermediate housing supports households whose needs cannot be met by the open market, to access affordable housing.

Because households have different circumstances with varying incomes, affordable housing schemes are designed to offer a range of choices.

There are two types of intermediate housing available:

Intermediate rentals

Intermediate rented housing is owned and let by a Registered Social Landlord and homes are managed and maintained in the same way as social rented homes, but higher rents can be charged (up to 80% of open market rent).

These properties are aimed at households who do not qualify for social housing and cannot secure
affordable rented accommodation in the private sector.

Intermediate homeownership

There is a number of different types of intermediate homeownership schemes available to households who want to own their own property. Visit the Tai Teg website for or more information on the type of intermediate housing products available.

Are you eligible to apply?

Affordable Housing Register

You can apply for intermediate housing by registering on our affordable housing register.

Supply of Affordable housing

Increasing the supply of affordable housing is one of the Council’s key priorities. We want people in Conwy have access to affordable, appropriate, good quality accommodation that enhance the quality of their lives.

We deliver affordable homes in many ways:

  • Managing Conwy’s affordable housing programme development plan (PDP);
  • Supporting the Planning Service and working to secure affordable homes as part of mixed tenure developments;
  • Delivering gypsy and traveller accommodation/pitches in appropriate locations

How do we know what the need is for affordable housing in Conwy?

We have carried out a Local Housing Market Assessment which helps us to understand the local housing need. The Local Housing Market Assessment provided the evidence base when we developed our Local Housing Strategy which sets out an agreed direction and vision for addressing housing needs and issues in Conwy over the next five years.
