Empty Homes Awards deadlines extended

We don't feel we have had enough submissions in 3 of our Empty Homes Awards Categories, and so we are extending the deadline for these for another week, until 2359 on Tuesday, 9th October.

The three Awards categories we are holding open are:

  • Innovation Award – sponsored by E.ON
  • Practitioner of the Year Award – sponsored by Kent No Use Empty

It seems that modesty prevails. Don't be shy - your work is more valuable than you may think.
