Major IT issue

We are working to resolve IT problems that mean people completing benefit online forms may not be able to complete or submit them.

The problems also mean that our staff and contact service are not able to access all their computer systems.

You can still carry out most transactions on our website. If you need to contact us by phone and your call is urgent we will try to help you. If your call is not urgent please contact us next week.

Apologies for the inconvenience while we resolve this problem.

Empty homes

Empty homes

Empty homes are a wasted resource and can also have a negative impact on their surrounding communities.

South Cambridgeshire is an area of high demand for affordable housing. 

There are currently over 4,800 people on the housing register looking for accommodation.

Empty homes are a wasted resource in terms of housing available for people to live in. They can also have a negative impact on their surrounding communities, as well as being a financial burden for many owners. 

We are therefore committed to making the most of existing stock within the District and want to encourage owners to bring long-term empty homes back into use.

We are currently reviewing our Empty Homes Strategy, and the ways we might be able to assist empty home owners; which will be uploaded here shortly.

If you are an owner of an empty property, or you are concerned about a possible vacant property, please get in touch with us. 

We are here to help and are happy to assist in any way that we are able to.
