This (see file attachment) is the first draft of the Empty Homes Network's contribution to the review of empty homes being conducted by the government. As with last year's National Action Plan proposals (which this effectively replaces) comments of practitioners are welcome and will be taken into account where appropriate. We have now set up a forum specifically for your comments at http://www.ehnetwork.org.uk/forums/ehn-contribution-empty-homes-review-2010. That's where to add your comments please.
Please note that if you commentyour name, job title and council will appear in the list of people credited with having contributed to the document unless you request otherwise. It can be useful to demonstrate broad support for our contribution.
Unlike last year's document we need to finalise the document urgently because the government review is already well-advanced and is due to be completed by December. So any comments need to be received over the next few days.
We look forward to hearing from you.
