Payment system maintenance

Due to maintenance, our online payment system will be unavailable from 7pm until 11.30pm on Monday 25 September. Please do not attempt to make payment during this time. We are sorry for any inconvenience.

Empty homes survey

Our Council Tax records indicate this property is unoccupied and unfurnished.

We are supporting the Government’s initiative to reduce the number of empty homes nationally and receives funding when properties are brought back into use. This funding, called the New Homes Bonus, is used to maintain local services.

Each year it is important for us to receive an update from owners regarding all empty properties in the district so that Council Tax records can be updated and so that accurate numbers of empty properties are reported.

Please start the survey.

It will take under 10 minutes to complete. You will need your council tax account number.

You may wish to record your reference number at the end of the survey.

The information you provide will be used to cross reference our council tax records to establish whether the dwelling is truly an empty property.
