Report an Empty Home

Do you know of an empty home? Then report it to the council

Computer keyboard green button with house symbol

Homes that stand empty in the Colchester area are a target for squatters, vandals and burglars. Instead, they could be providing homes for the many people who need them. That's why, as part of our local plan to get empty homes back into use, we've made it easy for you to tell us about a home you know is empty. It doesn't matter whether it belongs to the council or is privately owned - we will find out why it is empty and keep you informed and this is why we ask for your details on the form.

Report an Empty Home

Please note: We cannot provide a list of privately owned empty properties in the Colchester area due to the Data Protection Act 1998.
