Advice and guidance for empty property owners
Bringing empty properties back into use benefits the whole community; making neighbourhoods nicer places to live, helping to meet the demand for housing in the borough and supporting the growth of the local economy.
The following information can help empty property owners bring their property back into use without the need for Council intervention.
Please be aware that in situations where an empty property is causing a nuisance the Council may have a responsibility to take enforcement action such as an enforced sale, a compulsory purchase order or empty dwelling management order.
