Homes for a pound

The Homes for a Pound initiative is an innovative pilot scheme being carried out by Liverpool City Council to bring back into use 20 empty properties which are in need of extensive refurbishment works. 

The application process closed in May 2013 and we are no longer taking applications for this scheme.

Around 1,000 people applied and we are now in the process of matching the successful applicants to houses. It is anticipated that the first phase of refurbishments will start in Spring 2014.

Once the pilot project has been completed a review will be undertaken to assess the effectiveness of this approach and whether it can be used to bring other empty homes back into use across the city.
