People with empty homes in Cornwall are being offered cash to help do them up for local families.

Pirate FM has learnt that 28 thousand are on the waiting list in the Duchy.

Now the Empty Homes Agency is offering low-cost loans to do renovations.

The properties would then be rented out at an affordable price.

David Stott heads up the project and has this message: "You have empty properties here that need people living in them. Use the scheme. Use this, it'll benefit you financially, it'll benefit the people of Cornwall who'll be able to make this their home; it works for everybody.

"We're all over England but in Cornwall, such a lovely area of the country, such a need for people to be able to remain and stay and make these properties their home. It's a crying shame that there's empty properties in Cornwall and building new homes is not always the answer."

Cornwall Council has signed up to the scheme, as it tries to reduce the number of families on the housing waiting list.

Geoff Brown is in charge at County Hall: "It is sometimes very difficult for landlords to get funding. This is a really good avenue to support them. Just that kick-start to get the building completed, up to a good standard and that may be the key that releases the property."
