Council Tax Premium on second homes and long-term empty homes

The Housing Act (Wales) has added Sections 12A and 12B to the Local Government Finance Act 1992 (the Act which introduced Council Tax) to include a right for Councils to raise an additional premium of no more than 100% on long-term empty homes (Section 12A) and second homes (Section 12B).

A consultation was held in order to gather the views of Gwynedd taxpayers, homeowners and others on how the Council should implement these powers from 1 April 2018.
