Annual Housing Requirement


Local Councillors have asked us to investigate whether other LAs have offset their annual housing requirement with the numbers of empty properties brought back into use each year by the Council.  Whilst we are aware that some LAs use the overall empty property rates to offset, it would be useful to know if any also specifically use the numbers brought back into use through Council intervention when determining their housing requirements?

Thanks in advance
