TV appeal for empty property owners

The Council is working with a TV programme about empty properties, which follows the work of our empty property officer and the work the Council does to get empty properties back into use as homes within Amber Valley.  The programme makers are appealing for anyone who owns an empty property with potential to extend or remodel and that they are looking to sell. They're also looking for prospective buyers who may be looking to take on an empty property as a project. Anyone interested should contact the Council's empty property officer on 01773 841340.

Empty properties can be the cause of social and economic problems in neighbourhoods. The Council has various powers tackle properties which are left empty and which can become a blight to our towns and villages. Last year the Council worked with owners to get 69 empty properties back in the market as homes.

The Council is participating in the programme and recording is currently taking place until the end of November.

Councillor Norman Bull Cabinet Member for Decent and Affordable Places to Live said: "We hope by taking part in the programme again, we can highlight the issues faced in communities where there are empty properties. The ever increasing demand for quality housing means we need to make sure houses are occupied and maintained in a fit and habitable state for future generations."
