Empty homes newsletter and forum

The empty homes newsletter is sent out annually to all home owners whose properties have been empty for 6 months or more.

The newsletter includes updates on government legislation, help and assistance currently available, along with general advice and tips to help home owners return their properties to use.  The newsletter also contains a list of useful contacts within the council.
