Good Local Story
This makes a good story for a local paper. The Lincolnshire Echo has obtained details of all the empty homes in Lincoln making use of the Freedom of Information Act. Using approximate valuations from their council tax banding they worked out that £13.5 million worth of property is standing empty in the city. Better than that the paper also prints the roads where the properties can be found.
