Clusters programme

There are around 2500 empty private sector properties in Burnley, around a quarter (560) of these have been empty for over 2 years. They cluster to form 20% of the total housing stock in some areas and attract associated problems of anti-social behaviour, crime and fly tipping.

 

This programme is a continuation of the previous programme that ended at the end of the 2014-15 financial year. The intention of the programme is to bring vacant properties back in to use in the Selective Licensing Areas.

 

The funding available may be used to bring empty homes and other types of property (including commercial property) into use as housing as part of a neighbourhood approach. This includes property currently in private and public ownership, although existing social housing is not eligible for funding.

 

Funding should target long term empty properties (empty for longer than 6 months) which on average have been empty for at least two years, though there will be flexibility to take account of local circumstances. These properties must have good long term prospects in terms of occupancy and demand.

Maps of the three areas chosen for the Clusters Programme can be downloaded from the links opposite.
