Empty Homes

Did you know there are over 1,000 empty homes in Newcastle-under-Lyme?

We are committed to working with owners to bring them back into use as homes as they are a wasted resource and a blight to communities.

Reporting an empty home

To report an empty home please complete the General Enquiry form or contact us on 01782 717717.
