Consultation on Council Tax Charges for Vacant Property

View pages in this section

We are considering changing the level of Council Tax charged for properties in the first 6 months after they become empty.

Under Council Tax Legislation a discount can be granted for up to 6 months, but local councils are granted discretion to reduce the level of discount, including the power to reduce the discount to zero.

The Council is considering two possible charging options:

• 3 months 50% discount, followed by 3 months will nil discount (100% bill)
• 2 months 100% discount (nil bill) followed by 4 months nil discount (100% bill) 

We welcome your view on these proposals.  You can provide feedback online, by following this link to our survey.
