Empty Property

Volume 485: debated on Tuesday 16 December 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government how many empty properties there were in each local authority area in each of the last 10 years. (242872)

I have placed in the Library of the House a table showing the number of long-term empty homes (i.e. domestic properties) reported by each billing authority since 2004 on annual CTB1 and CTB1S forms submitted to Communities and Local Government. Reliable estimates before 2004 are not available.

Information about the number of empty non-domestic properties is not available centrally.
