Empty homes strategy
At a time of huge need for housing, we recognise the need to reduce the number of long-term empty properties and the Government expects us to encourage the reuse of empty homes.
We have given a commitment in our housing strategy to work to reduce the numbers of empty homes. We encourage owners to bring their properties back into use and ultimately to deter them from leaving their homes empty. We may also be able to help in dealing with blight resulting from living near to an empty property.
How to report an empty home
We aware that there are many more empty homes which we currently do not know about that may be causing you problems. Please contact us using the means below to advise of an empty home that you are aware of.
