What your candidates say about empty homes

You'll be voting on 3 May in Crayford ward, where you have 8 candidates to choose from.

We emailed candidates to ask: If elected, will you vote to double council tax on empty homes in Bexley Borough Council, and work to end the scandal of properties being left empty? Here's what they said.

Sean Michael Peter Ash, Liberal Democrats

This candidate is supporting the pledge

Their comments: In my campaign, I have pledged to vote against council tax increases. This is a pledge I stand firmly by. However, for residents living in Bexley and occupying homes, by supporting this campaign, the increases would not apply to them. This is solely about empty properties in which are not being used to which a homeless person could have occupied. It is the only increase that I will support as it is morally correct thing.
