Buy and Renew Scheme
Sell To Westmeath County Council
Do you own a vacant property?

The Buy and Renew Scheme enables Westmeath County Council to buy and refurbish long term vacant property for social housing use. The focus under the Buy and Renew will be on lder stock in urban areas with a view to tackling dereliction and improving streetscapes. The scheme is now being rolled out by Westmeath County Council and we would like to hear from interested property owners who may have suitable vacant properties.

Westmeath County Council are also interested in buying residential properties and sites in Westmeath with a view to achieving social housing targets set out under Rebuilding Ireland – Action Plan for Housing and Homelessness.

Property will be considered once demand can be established; however properties which are currently vacant or are owner occupied will be prioritised. The objective of the Acquisition Programme is to provide homes for the people of Westmeath in sustainable communities with a good balance of mixed income and mixed tenure households.

If you are aware of a vacant property in your area you can now register details on vacanthomes.ie

Please contact Housing on 044 93 32119 or at secretar@westmeathcoco.ie if you know of a vacant property or have an interest in selling to Westmeath County Council.
