Empty Homes list

Andrew Wilson made this Freedom of Information request to Oldham Metropolitan Borough Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Oldham Metropolitan Borough Council,

I am looking for a list of long term empty residential properties within the Council area. Would you be able to supply me with these under the Freedom of Information Act? A spreadsheet will suffice, I require no personal information simply the property addresses including postcode.

If possible will you also be able to identify whether the properties are residential (I am only really interested in residential properties) and there ownership. By ownership I would like to know whether they are Council, Housing Association or privately owned.

It would also be useful, but not at all essential to know if the properties were acquired as part of the Housing Market Renewal Pathfinder programme.

Yours faithfully,

Andrew Wilson

Peter Williams, Oldham Metropolitan Borough Council
