Empty residential properties in BD1 in 2015

Currently waiting for a response from Bradford City Council, they should respond promptly and normally no later than (details).

Dear Bradford City Council,

Could I have the total number of empty properties in BD1 in 2015? For this year you've provided a total of 400 based on Prem100 and PLPC empty properties for BD1, so an equivalent as of 01/01/2015 would be ideal to identify any trend over the last half a decade.

Yours faithfully,

I Hudson

Dear Council Tax,

Does the council's regeneration function track empty properties and trends, surely if they don't then correct decisions can't be made about strategy based on the type of residential developments that succeed or fail.

So could I ask does the regeneration department track such trends as to at least partially answer this question?

Yours sincerely,

I Hudson
