Findings from Workshops
Home from Home highlights the role that environmental health officers can play in addressing issues realting to accommodation for migrant workers.
Migrant workers come to the UK to seek employment but all too often find themselves living in expensive, overcrowded and poor-quality accommodation. This report seeks to make a fresh assessment of this important issue.

How re-using old buildings can cut carbon emissions
In order to reduce carbon emissions, is it better to demolish older houses and replace them with newly-built ones that are highly energy-efficient? This research, carried out in co-operation with Empty Homes, sets out to provide an answer.
Average house prices in 53 rural areas are now more than ten times the average salary and living in rural areas is rapidly becoming an option available only to the wealthy. The number of second homes continues to increase, while affordable homes to rent or buy are increasingly scarce. For local households on lower incomes this means overcrowding, homelessness or having to leave their roots and move away. Local services and facilities are in decline and this is felt most keenly by those who have no option but to rely on them. Economic activity is considered intrusive and inappropriate in the rural idyll.
