Problem

  • Second homes, holiday lets, vacant properties sitting in BDC unused. (BDC say that it’s about 265 houses – only 0.96% of the houses in BDC)

What is BDC’s method for identifying empty properties, and then enforcing it?

Potential Solutions

  • Inspect empty homes
  • Change Council Tax regulations to increase CT on empty homes
  • Use compulsory purchase orders (CPOs) more to recover empty homes.
  • Use Empty Dwelling Management Orders to let them out.
