"NAEPP will provide a national voice for local authority and RSL staff in their work to bring empty homes back into use. The Government is keen to see its membership grow into a national network of empty property practitioners. So I would urge all local authorities to take out membership of NAEPP. This will ensure that all relevant officers in the authority benefit from the good practice and training opportunities developed by, and for, empty property practitioners."
Sally Keeble, Under Secretary for State, 2nd July 2001
