Draft Empty Homes Strategy

The overall aim of the Draft Empty Homes Strategy is to bring long-term empty homes back into use.

Together with our partners we seek innovative solutions to the problem and hence contribute towards

increasing housing supply and improving local environments.

This Draft Empty Homes Strategy is for the period 2019-2024. It takes into account developments in

legislation and best practice and the success the Council has achieved in reducing the number of very

long term empty properties in the Borough since the Empty Homes Strategy 2013-2019 was published.
