Councils Make 46 Empty Home Orders In 5 Years

Recommended Posts

So, who is getting taxpayer's money to reduce the number of empty homes?

Our money >>>> to councils >>>> to house owners ??

Andrew Stunell (Parliamentary Under Secretary of State, Communities and Local Government; Hazel Grove, Liberal Democrat)

It is a scandal that we have in this country 300,000 homes that have been empty for longer than six months.....

However, the investment that we will announce later this month will make a big difference to the figures nationally

In the five years that empty homes management orders have been in force—they were introduced in 2006—only 46 have been made by local authorities across the country. That contrasts with the 300,000 empty homes, but they are the back-stop. I am happy to say that a lot of good work is done by many local authorities and other agencies to bring homes back into use. I intend to accelerate that process dramatically
