Empty homes: Outline

Empty homes are a wasted resource and can look unsightly, attracting fly tipping, vandalism and other anti-social behavior.  

The Council is committed to returning empty homes back into use and is seeking your assistance in identifying long term empty homes in the area so that we can offer their owners advice and support to bring them back into use.  An empty home is defined as a home that has been empty for six months or longer.

If you know of an empty home in Rossendale, then please contact the Stategic Housing Team.
