Derelict properties

We have the power to deal with privately-owned vacant buildings which are not secured against unauthorised entry or are likely to become a danger to public health.

We have a responsibility to ensure derelict and insecure buildings are made secure and pose no public health threat.

Grants and incentive schemes are available to help owners bring empty properties back into residential use.
