Grant funding opportunities for properties in the city centre.

Property Enhancement Development Fund (PEDF)

This is a grant scheme that has been established to target derelict or vacant properties to bring them back into beneficial use and to insure good quality building and shop front enhancements across the city centre.

The amount of any financial support offered via the PEDF grants to applicants is a maximum of 45% and will be assessed on an individual case by case basis, taking account of the economic and environmental benefits that the project provides. To qualify for the grant the completed scheme must accommodate new jobs.

Financial support through the PEDF grants will normally be the minimum contribution required to bring the project forward. Items that are eligible for a grant include building facades, roofs, shop fronts, floors, ceilings, staircases, re-wiring, signage together with associated professional fees. Ineligible items include fixtures and fittings, areas not visible to the public, major structural repairs and normal maintenance. Residential schemes cannot be considered for a PEDF grant.

Homes above shops (HAS)

HAS grants are available within the city centre to convert empty floorspace on upper floors of commercial units into new residential accommodation.

Projects can have a HAS grant of up to 45% of the eligible cost of the work and professional fees, but this will be assessed on an individual case by case basis.
Items eligible for a grant include all works necessary to create new residential accommodation excluding fixtures and fittings.

The award and level of grant offered is at the discretion of the City and County of Swansea. Please note that an application would be ineligible if the proposed works have commenced or have been announced before a grant has been awarded.
