From Office to Home

Empty Homes Week 2017 (16-22 October) marks the launch of the Empty Property Team’s “From Office to Home” project to turn empty commercial properties into much-needed homes. 

The scheme encourages owners of long-term empty commercial buildings to breathe new life into their derelict properties by converting them into residential flats. Properties that have sat empty for a number of years, blighting the landscape, are our priorities. Generous grants are available to help with conversion costs.

The Empty Property officers have the expertise needed to guide landlords through the planning process. Their successes include two developments that created 25 homes for families in housing need. 

If you are a landlord or a developer with an empty commercial building, don’t let your asset go to waste!
