The Minister for Housing and Sustainable Homes, Emmanuelle Cosse, has just announced the launch of a national network of local authorities against vacant housing.
The goal of this network is to highlight the work of local authorities and to encourage the sharing of best practices to speed up the process whereby vacant housing becomes available on the market. This announcement is part of the « Mobilisons les énergies » programme.
The Minister emphasized that: « making vacant housing in the private sector available plays a key role in helping us reach our objectives to provide affordable housing for all and a social mix».
Concretely, this national network will allow authorities to share best practices to identify vacant housing, to help property owners, and to make sure such housing becomes available on the market as rapidly as possible.
