The Empty Homes Network is pleased to announce the launch of its nationwide survey, aimed at investigating the correlation between local and nationally held statistics, the breakdown of those numbers, along with the resources applied to empty homes work by Local Authorities.
Based on the statistics held within Empty Homes Officer databases, the research aims to:
- break down locally held information and statistics into categories and descriptions of their ownership types, and reasons for becoming and/or remaining empty such as pre/post probate
- compare and contrast those categories and their statistics, and determine whether trends can be found to support a national, regional, rural or urban hypothesis as to why empty homes figures have risen across the country in recent years
- consider the numbers of empty homes brought back into use with Local Authority involvement and intervention
