A new tool will show you exactly how many empty homes there are in your area, giving a glimpse into the shortage of housing in England.
The Housing England website allows you to see how your local authority, or region, measures up for vacant homes on a short- and long-term basis.
Created by Tom Forth, head of data at Leeds data organisation Open Innovations, the tool can tell you how your local area compares to the national average.
From just £3 per week
For instance, the Walsall constituency of Eddie Jones, the minister responsible for rough sleeping, has fewer empty homes than the national average.
Latest government figures show there are nearly 250,000 homes in England which have been empty for more than six months – but many of those need fixing up before they can be lived in.
And as those homes sit empty, 96,060 households are living in temporary accommodation in England.
