Information and guidance about discounts and charges for unoccupied properties.
The Council operates a proactive approach to ensure that empty homes do not remain empty unnecessarily and fall into misuse or dereliction.
To encourage owners of empty homes to bring their properties back into use, Councils have the powers to increase the empty homes premium thresholds and reduce or remove discounts for properties which are left empty.
The Council also gives advice in relation to bringing empty properties back in to use.
