I am in Hanworth tomorrow morning for a Radio interview about our use of a Empty Dwelling Management Order (EDMO). London Borough of Hounslow was the first in London to go down this path.
Will let you know how it goes!
Update: Unfortunately, the car of the gentleman from Radio 4 broke down. We have to reschedule but it was well worth looking around. Clearly a lot of work to the property is needed. It just confirmed my view even further that this action was the right thing to do.
