Council gets serious about tackling empty homes

Council Tax will quadruple on homes in Trafford that have remained vacant for more than 10 years.

Empty homes are a wasted resource when there is a shortage of housing across the country, especially in Trafford. These properties also blight our neighbourhoods and can be a focus for anti-social behaviour.

We are committed to bringing empty properties back into use as quickly as possible by working with owners of empty homes and our partners to take all available opportunities to help us tackle this issue

Cllr James Wright, Executive member for Housing and Regeneration
