Part of the reason we have a housing crisis is that many usable houses stand empty. If they were brought into use we may not need to build as many new homes on the green fields of Wiltshire
Following Liberal Democrat nagging including a notice of motion on empty homes at Full Council last month, WC has announced that Claire Pullan who is a Service Development Officer within Strategic Housing has been allocated the work of an empty homes officer on a full time basis to start from today.
Claire's main focus will not be on enforcement but on providing owners and landlords with options to help them bring their properties back into use. Her work will give a much better picture on the reasons why some properties across Wiltshire have been empty for months
The main priorities of this post will be to:-
Claire has already started work on developing a database to collect all the required information and will shortly be sending out a questionnaire for all owners of long term empty homes and will encourage them to bring back to use this valuable resource in our housing market.
Claire Pullan can be contacted on 01249 706614, Claire.email@example.com and is based at Monkton Park in Chippenham.
