In support of the government’s national initiative to tackle the shortfall in housing, Calderdale Council is currently undertaking a review of all empty homes in the area that are currently listed as long term empty premises. The review is being undertaken in conjunction with a company called Capacitygrid.
If your property is currently classified as empty, then Capacitygrid may contact you to confirm whether the property is still vacant. If you receive correspondence from Capacitygrid regarding your property, please would you update the property records for your address. You will need the information provided on the letter sent to you to do this.
We’re committed to returning empty properties back into use. This helps to:
- Increase the supply of much needed housing
- Reduce homelessness
- Contribute to the regeneration of an area
