Long term empty property strategy for Herefordshire 2021-2024

Empty private properties in Herefordshire have a significant impact upon their local environment and the community. They are also a waste of valuable housing resource which could be used to provide a home. The Empty Property Strategy for Herefordshire is effective from April 2020 and sets out how the council, with the support of its partners will reduce the number of empty properties in Herefordshire up to 2024.

The aim of the strategy is to:

  • Examine how existing properties can be used to accommodate households with a range of needs, in particular to reduce demand for social housing, but also to ensure that the existing offer is utilised to meet the needs of the community as a whole.
