There is no dedicated funding from the Government for empty homes programmes after 2015. Will you lobby the Government to replicate the successful £100m empty homes fund, including a specific pot of money for community groups?

No.

There is already provision to bring empty homes back into use as affordable housing through my Housing Covenant 2015-18 programme, which community groups are already looking at using.
