Drop-in session to be held in Wirral as part of Empty Homes Week 2017

WIRRAL Council are holding a drop in session for owners of empty properties as part of events around Empty Homes Week, on Monday, 16 October 2017.  As part of efforts to provide good quality housing in Wirral, the Council supports owners of empty properties to bring them back into use. Between last year and this year, 308 empty properties in Wirral were returned back to use as homes with support from the Council.

As part of Empty Homes Week, an annual national campaign organised by the Empty Homes Agency, a drop in session is taking place, at Wallasey Town Hall, on Thursday, 19 October 2017, to help owners of empty properties find out what help is available. The public can also attend to flag up any empty properties that are causing them concern.  The drop-in will be from 10am to 3pm and no appointment is necessary.

Cllr George Davies, Wirral's Cabinet Member for Housing, said:- "Empty homes are a waste of good housing stock and money. By 2020, the council aims to bring 1,250 of them back into residential use. This work is carried out by our Housing Renewal Team who help owners of empty properties return them to use through a range of support, including the Empty Property Grant scheme."

As part of Empty Homes Week 2017 the owners of empty properties are urged get in touch to find out how Wirral Council can help them improve, let or sell their property. We also want to hear from residents who may be affected by an empty property in their neighbourhood.

If you would like help or support, please contact the Housing Renewal Team on:- 0151 691 8132 or via sending them an email. You can also visit the Council's website.
