These are the detailed descriptors for the Strategic Approach to Housing KLOE
Under the new arrangements, the descriptors and evidence are only given in detail for Fair and Good levels of attainment. The Audit Commission does not want to constrain innovation by dictating what should be considered as "Excellent"
The references to empty homes occur under KLOE 1.3 on page 8 and, more significantly, under KLOE 3.2 on page 17.
KLOE 3.2 is "There is an effective approach to improving the quality and use of existing housing and promoting sustainable neighbourhoods".
This is the actual KLOE (see separate document for the descriptors).
Empty homes is referenced in section 3.2 on page 6.
