Long term empty property finally back in use

9 Bradley Drive

A small house on Bradley Drive – site of one of York’s longest running empty homes wrangles – is finally ready for re-occupation.

The, privately owned, singe bedroom property, had been empty for over 6 years and had been due to be brought back into use in 2011.

Unfortunately, at that stage, the newly elected Labour Council interrupted the legal process that would have allowed the property to be sold.

The property has finally been restored. It now features modern heating, cooking and bathroom facilities.

Local residents have welcomed the improvement to the neighbourhood that the renovation work has brought.

The property has been empty for about 6 years. The Council was on the brink of gaining possession of the problem property – whose owner has absconded – in 2011 but the initiative was abandoned by the new Labour Council.

Two years later they did restart proceedings but little progress has been made and the building remains a target for vandals.

The Council has failed to improve the eyesore.
