Action on Empty Homes launches 'Community Action on Empty Homes' report

Action on Empty Homes (formerly The Empty Homes Agency), has launched its report entitled 'Community Action on Empty Homes', outlining its findings of a three-year study of 6 community led projects. 

Whilst outlining the fantastic work done by these community groups, the report also issues a call to action on Local Authorities, Central Government, Funding Partners and Housing Associations to do more with the tools and resources available, to return more empty homes to use across the Country.

Preston to use developer contributions to tackle empty homes initiative

The proposal has now been approved: see Lancashire Evening Post story

Preston was previously a leading local authority for empty homes work, with its initiative spearheaded by the erstwhile Treasurer of EHN, Alex Starritt. It looks likely to resume a leading role with this new initiative.
