Suspected empty property – make a report

We are working with property owners in the district to encourage and assist them to bring empty properties back into use, in order to provide much needed decent, affordable homes for local people.

If you are the owner of an empty property and want to know more about the grants or loans available, please contact our Housing Services team or telephone 01653 600666.

If you are aware of a long term empty property, which gives rise to concerns in your neighbourhood and you wish to report this for investigation by the Council, please complete the details below. An officer will contact you with the results of any investigation in due course.
