Decision Made
That the revenue funding to deliver a three year long term empty homes programme be approved.
Reason for Decision
There was a lack of resources to achieve action on a significant number of long-term empty homes that represent a wasted resource.  Creating a dedicated programme represented a cost-effective investment to bring back into use homes via a variety of options.
Alternative Options Considered and Rejected

Do nothing to encourage the re-occupation of long-term empty homes, other than continue to charge the permitted Council Tax Premium.


Continue to deal with problematic long term empty homes on an ad hoc basis as resources are available.

Any Declarations of Interest Declared
