The Cabinet considered a report of the Deputy Chief Executive and Executive Director (Growth and Housing) presenting the empty homes strategy 2021-2026 together with an analysis of the consultation findings.
1. That the draft Empty Homes Strategy 2021-2026, be approved for implementation.
2. That the incentives to reduce the amount of the empty homes contained within the strategy be approved and the associated capital budget be noted.
Reason for Decision:
The previous Empty Homes Strategy has now come to the end of its lifecycle and given that bringing empty homes back into use continues to be a priority for the Council, a renewed strategy is required to govern the Council’s approach to undertaking this work.
