Council tax on empty homes and second homes in 2009-2018

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear Sirs,

I am a researcher in Economics at University College London.

For my research, I would need the council tax discount/premium on second homes, on homes empty for longer than 6 months and homes empty for longer than 2 years as a percentage of the standard council tax in your council from 2009 to 2018.

The following link contains an excel template of the exact information I would need for my research:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1...

Could you please send me an excel file that replicates the template with the tax premium/discounts applied in your council?

Yours sincerely,
Enrico Miglino

Helen Keast, Erewash Borough Council
