Empty Property Owners
Are you an owner of an empty property?
Monmouthshire County Council wishes to work with owners of empty properties to bring them back into use. We believe that the re-use of empty properties would benefit the community by contributing to an increased supply and choice ofhousing, while at the same time contributes to safe-guarding the environment and economic prosperity of the County.
