Southend Council is in the process of formulating its Empty Homes Strategy for the next five years. It will set out a continued commitment to the work already begun by the Labour-led administration to reduce the number of empty homes in the borough, to increase the availability of good quality and affordable homes and to make the best use of existing stock.
The strategy sets out key aims which will help the Council continue to bring empty homes back into use. Obtaining the views of borough residents and owners of empty homes will help shape the council’s approach and ensure the strategy takes all relevant factors into account to achieve strategy aims and successful outcomes.
Residents are encouraged to complete the survey, which can be accessed along with further information by clicking here.
