Questions at Council

Please find below the responses to questions asked at Council meetings.

At the meeting of Council on 14 December 2011, Councillor Finlay asked for clarification regarding the empty homes bonus, in particular whether 'empty' meant any empty home or homes that had been empty for 6 months or more. Councillor McCarron-Holmes response is as follows: "An empty home for the purpose of the New Homes Bonus is one that has been empty for longer than 6 months. It excludes those empty homes that have an "exemption" attached, due to probate or when we have served a Prohibition Order on it, legally prohibiting its use, for example."
