Empty homes are a wasted resource in terms of housing available for people to live in and can also have a negative impact on their surrounding communities, as well as being a financial burden for many owners. South Cambridgeshire is in a high area of demand for affordable housing and there are currently over 4,800 people on the housing register looking for accommodation. The Council is therefore committed to making the most of existing stock within the District and wants to encourage owners to bring long-term empty homes back into use.
We are currently reviewing our Empty Homes Strategy, and the ways we might be able to assist empty home owners, for 2017; which will be uploaded here shortly.
If you are an empty property owner, or you are concerned about a possible vacant property, please get in touch with us. We are here to help and are happy to assist in any way that we are able to.
