There are approximately 1200 empty properties in the district of Stratford-on Avon, of which more than 200 have been empty for two years or longer. There is currently a serious housing shortage within the district and problems of overcrowding and homelessness are contributed to by empty properties.
The council is committed to finding solutions to address the long-term problems, and local people have an important role to play.
Bringing your empty property back into use will have a positive impact on the local environment. It will help the council address the current housing need and demand and help to support a sustainable community by increasing the housing stock.
The Empty Property Officer can offer advice, information and support on selling/letting and renovating your empty property. Subject to owners meeting the required criteria, Empty Property Assistance Grants may be available.
