NO USE EMPTY CELEBRATES 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY
DURING NATIONAL EMPTY HOMES WEEK
National Empty Homes Week
Monday 30th November through to Sunday 6th December.
Empty Homes Week is all about community-led organisations, local authorities and others holding events and putting out information to celebrate local achievements in bringing empty homes back into use and also to set out their future plans and the case for making the most of empty properties to meet housing needs.
Since its launch in 2005, No Use Empty (NUE), a collaboration between Kent County Council (KCC) and the twelve district councils across the county, has helped to bring over 4,100 empty homes back into use helping to regenerate deprived urban wards and stimulating local housing markets.
KCC celebrated 10 years of No Use Empty – the award winning and longest running Empty Property initiative in the UK – on 2 December 2015 with an event at County Hall to look back on our achievements to date and hear about how we will be taking No Use Empty forward into 2016 and beyond!
NUE were pleased to welcome Helen Williams, Chief Executive of the national campaigning charity Empty Homes, as guest speaker.
Find out what Helen and our guests had to say after the event.
Our new Bumper Edition Newsletter to celebrate 10 Years of No Use Empty is now on line.
