Empty homes need to be brought back into use.
In this day and age when the Council are being forced to look at building 80.000 plus new homes in the coming years, they need to look at dealing with empty homes empty to try and get them occupied.
In Birmingham these are needed to ease the housing problem and they can be a target for squatters, vandals and burglars, when they could be providing homes for the many people who need one.
If you know of a long time empty home please do report it to the Birmingham Empty homes team .contact : Twitter address: https://twitter.com/bccemptyhomes Twitter handle: @bccemptyhomes email: firstname.lastname@example.org :.
Or let me know and I will report it.
Hopefully the more empty houses put back on the market the less green space will be needed to build homes on which would help our environment and even the climate
