Is anyone still using this forum? No-one seems to have posted since November.

Does anyone know what powers Local Authorities have in relation to commercial premises standing empty when there is reason to believe the landlord is making no attempt to re-let them? We have a pub in a prime location - right by the riverside and full in the face of tourists arriving by car or boat - great welcome to the town!

We know that under the Localism Act we might be able to use the “Community Right to Buy” route - but we are not keen to do that. Any ideas?
