Issue details

Council Tax Premiums


 An unoccupied and unfurnished premium of 50% was introduced in April 2019 and this was subsequently increased to 100% with effect from April 2023. Despite this increase the number of long term unoccupied premiums has not reduced significantly and Cabinet is asked to review the existing scheme and consider whether introducing an incremental premium scheme is appropriate which charges higher premiums dependent on the length of time the property has been unoccupied and unfurnished.
