Burnley council house sales raise £500k
5:33pm Friday 21st October 2011
ALMOST £500,000 has been raised by Burnley Council this year by sales of houses through the vacant property initiative.
The measure is used to tackle long-term vacant properties in need of renovation.
The money will be ploughed back into the scheme to buy more empty properties.
