Ac­tion on city’s empty homes

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

A WEEK of Ac­tion on Empty Homes in Leeds launches on Mon­day.

De­vised by Leeds-based so­cial en­ter­prise So­cial Busi­ness Bro­kers and backed by Leeds City Coun­cil, it aims to in­tro­duce home own­ers, busi­nesses, in­vestors and lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties to the range of so­lu­tions avail­able to bring empty prop­er­ties back into use.

Rob Green­land, co-di­rec­tor of So­cial Busi­ness Bro­kers says: “There are more than 5,000 longterm empty homes in Leeds while thou­sands of fam­i­lies strug­gle to find a de­cent home to rent or buy. This week of ac­tion is all about putting the spot­light on the prac­ti­cal, pos­i­tive things all of us can do.”
