£70m released to renovate empty homes – list

Aaron Morby 10 years ago

Ninety five housing associations and local authorities have been handed cash to renovate thousands of empty homes up and down the country.

The Homes and Communities Agency allocated the funding which will bring back into use 5,600 new affordable homes.

This is the first time that the HCA has administered an Empty Homes Programme, which will fund the refurbishment of properties which have been empty for at least six months.

The grant chips away at the potential for renovating existing dilapidated housing with an estimated 700,000 homes standing empty at any one time.

Chief executive of the HCA, Pat Ritchie, said: “One of the HCA’s key aims is to maintain a supply of affordable homes. With thousands of homes and properties lying empty across England, we have a leading role to play in tackling the issue of empty homes blighting our communities, and this funding is welcomed.

The high level of interest we received by providers bidding to participate in this programme demonstrates just how important an issue it is.
