Grants of up to £20,000 made available for renovating empty homes

Harry Leach 12th Nov, 2019

GRANTS of up to £20,000 are available from Stratford District Council to help pay for the renovation or improvement of empty homes, or the conversion of an empty non-residential property into a home.

Councillor Jo Barker (Con, Shipston South), People portfolio holder, said: “There is a real value in bringing empty homes back into use for our communities.

“Empty homes are seen as blighting a neighbourhood because they are left to fall to rack and ruin and they can be a source of vandalism, anti-social behaviour or can become unsafe over time.

“The district council offers support where it can to encourage people to bring their empty homes back into use and, by using funding effectively to bring empty properties back into use, additional, affordable housing will be created for those in housing need.”
