Shocking figures have revealed that Labour Lambeth council has failed to use its full powers to help bring empty homes back into use.
Lib Dem campaigners pressed for the information, and found 707 homes are known by the Council to have been empty for 2 years or more. Amazingly 98 homes have stood empty for 10 years or more. Incredible!
We all know how many people around here need a home of their own. We demand that the Council makes use of the full powers it has in order to bring homes back into use for ordinary people. Enough people need a home.
On empty homes it’s time for action, not excuses.
Time to act on empty homes
“We call on Lambeth to make use of their full powers to bring empty homes back into use. It’s time that more is done to tackle homelessness locally.”
