Empty homes are a wasted resource and can also have a negative impact on their surrounding communities.
South Cambridgeshire is an area of high demand for affordable housing.
There are currently over 4,800 people on the housing register looking for accommodation.
Empty homes are a wasted resource in terms of housing available for people to live in. They can also have a negative impact on their surrounding communities, as well as being a financial burden for many owners.
We are therefore committed to making the most of existing stock within the District and want to encourage owners to bring long-term empty homes back into use.
Our Private Sector Leasing Scheme, Shire Homes, offers home owners a hassle-free way to rent out their properties.
We are currently reviewing our Empty Homes Strategy, and the ways we might be able to assist empty home owners; which will be uploaded here shortly.
If you are an owner of an empty property, or you are concerned about a possible vacant property, please get in touch with us (contact details below).
