In October 2016, Peterborough had approximately 540 properties that had been empty for six months or more. Whilst the number of empty homes brought back into use has been significant during the past four years, the waste of good housing, criminal activity and urban degradation associated with empty homes continues. Coupled with this, around 3,330 people remain on the Council’s housing register, clearly demonstrating the need for affordable housing in the city. Visit the Empty Homes page for more information and to report an empty property.
