Compulsory purchases unlock new opportunities for home relocation in CheshireMay 11th, 2012 | Posted by in Expatriate Relocation
International moving can be a daunting proposition, but the efforts of Cheshire West and Chester Council are helping to make sure there are more properties available for home relocation in Cheshire, both for UK residents and for those coming into the country for the first time.
Since 2009, a total of 264 abandoned and empty homes have been subject to compulsory purchase orders, allowing the council to sell them on so that they can be used and brought up to a good standard of repair.
“We are sending out a clear message that wasting housing resources will not be tolerated when the demand for homes is at an all-time high,” says Councillor Herbert Manley, executive member for prosperity.
The move is not only about making sure residential properties are occupied – it is also about keeping housing standards high in the county’s communities.
Without intervention, some of those empty homes can become vandalised, so the effort from Cheshire West and Chester Council also makes sure crime levels are kept under control.
All of this makes the area much more appealing for home relocation – something our relocation specialists can help you to investigate if you are looking into international moving in Cheshire.
