Council seeks landlords to improve access to private rented homes

A new pilot scheme to provide better access to longer term affordable and good quality housing in the private rented sector is underway in Cardiff.

The Council is keen to work with residential landlords in the city who have properties available to lease to the authority for a period of five years, to increase the amount of affordable homes available for tenants.

The scheme is funded by Welsh Government and will be managed by the Council, offering a significant range of support services and benefits to private landlords and tenants, including:


  • Financial assistance to improve a property;
  • A guaranteed rental income even if the property is empty;
  • Responsibility for repairs and maintenance throughout the lease period;
  • Tenancy management functions and ongoing housing support for the resident.

Financial assistance is available for landlords interested in the scheme, but whose properties are in need of renovation to meet Welsh Government standards for leasing.  A non-repayable grant of up to £2,000, plus an interest free loan of up to £8,000 repayable over four years, are on offer for necessary improvements.

Investment boost for Rhiwbina Library

Plans to invest in Rhiwbina Library to deliver additional and enhanced services for the community have been unveiled.

The Council is carrying out an engagement exercise on proposals to refurbish the library building and create the newest facility in the city's network of community hubs. The aim will be to deliver more Council and partner organisation services there, based on the theme of wellbeing.

With funding from Welsh Government's Integrated Care Fund for the development, the Council is proposing to create new and improved reception facilities, additional meeting spaces for service delivery and community activities, new library shelving and seating areas and improved IT facilities and Wi-Fi coverage. The refurbishment would include dementia-friendly internal redecoration throughout the public space and the creation of an attractive and usable outdoor space.

Futureservices will be shaped in partnership with the local community and will include a variety of health and wellbeing focussed activities.
