This document details Conwy County Borough Council's policies in relation to private sector renewal arrangements, and the award of financial assistance and other relevant forms of assistance that the Council is able to offer.
It is commonly acknowledged that poor-quality housing can impact upon the health of the occupants, and on the quality of life in an area. Whilst it is primarily the responsibility of homeowners to maintain their own properties, it is recognised that some homeowners, particularly the elderly and vulnerable, do not have the necessary resources to keep their homes in good repair.
However, as Local Authorities have a duty to review and address housing standards in their area, they have a significant role to play in helping homeowners to meet this responsibility. This document sets out Conwy's policies in relation to the forms of assistance it is currently able to offer, and forms the basis for developing new policies as circumstances change in the future.
