National Empty Homes Week of Action - 23rd-29th November 2008
As housing becomes an ever increasing issue throughout Britain, the Empty
Homes Agency is calling for local people to report empties in their area.
At the very time people need more homes, record numbers are falling
empty says Chief Executive David Ireland. There are now enough vacant
homes in England to house almost two million people yet far more attention
is paid to building new ones. Councils have the power to step in and help,
but cant do so unless they know where they are and wont unless they know
people care, he said.
Therefore they have launched a new website for people to report the
empties that they are aware of:
Most interesting is that there is a function where people can view
recently reported empties, with a handy little map and everything -
something squatters may well be very interested in perusing also!!!!
