Empty homes can be a wasted resource. They can also be the targets of vandals and squatters, which can affect the quality of life of neighbours. We want these empty homes to come back into use. This will help tackle these issues and help meet housing demand in Wales.

We have developed this good practice guide, with Shelter Cymru and other representative bodies, to assist local authorities in tackling empty homes.

The guide highlights the powers and measures local authorities can use to deal with empty homes. It also provides examples of good practice and effective strategies to help them to develop and maintain their own strategies.
