Nominations are open to find Britain’s Biggest Waste of Space

We love the Waste of Space Campaign launched by Empty Homes to find Britain’s worst empty property. It is urging the public and local campaigners throughout the UK to nominate the empty public property they feel is the worst in their area, the one they feel is a complete waste of space. And the prize? Well the winner will receive the Biggest Waste of Space award at the National Empty Homes Conference held in November.

We think this is an ingenious idea; it raises the profile of empty homes, it gets people thinking about the empty homes in their areas, and it might get those owners of public properties thinking more carefully about keeping it empty, I mean, who would want to win this award?!

The deadline for nominations for 2012 is 24th September so get voting – we can think of a few already!
