WQ85504 (e) Tabled on 13/06/2022

Further to WQ85396, will the Minister provide a timeframe as to when the Welsh Government will publish its updated guidance to local authorities about the options available to them regarding exemptions from a council tax premium for properties restricted by a planning condition?

Answered by Minister for Finance and Local Government | Answered on 17/06/2022

If we determine that an amendment is necessary to exempt certain properties from council tax premiums, our intention would be that this will be brought into effect from 1 April 2023 alongside revised guidance.
