5. Enforcement action

We will offer advice, assistance and support to empty property owners to bring their properties back into use. We will work with owners to provide a tailored package of advice, assistance and incentives specific to the owners needs. We will encourage owners to work together with us to reach a solution in order to bring the property back into use.

As a last resort, we will pursue enforcement action to return a long term empty property back into use.
