A breakfast event will be held next week to encourage landlords to use empty homes to house vulnerable people.

North Somerset Council will host a free landlord breakfast at the Winter Gardens in Royal Parade from 9-11am on Tuesday.

Owners of vacant second homes can find out more about the council’s incentives for helping vulnerable households.

Councillor Elfan Ap Rees, executive member for housing, believes the event will ultimately help people who face not being able to put a roof over their head.

He said: “Many households from across North Somerset are searching for an affordable privately-rented home.

“We are looking for affordable accommodation and can offer a range of incentives to landlords who can help us house families and people who are threatened with homelessness.”

The council’s landlord incentive scheme includes financial support such as rent in advance, cash deposits and improvement grants.
