Appears the owners not too interested. Law should now be changed to fulfill the half that was 'forgotten' in the 'squatting' bill passed last September 2012 to ban all squatting and associated activities in residential premises and extend to all premises including 'derelict' commercial.. Council etc then will be able to act positively for the good of all residents - majority of whom pay their way in one form or other presumbably.
In what way is a derelict property good for all residents? By not using the property, the owner is behaving anti-socially.
Would you support measures to force, or at least strongly encourage, property owners to actually use their properties (such as a land tax), rather than leaving them as a blight on a neighbourhood that needs more residents, workplaces and beauty?
