We want your views on what level of council tax premiums should be charged on long-term empty properties and second homes in Ceredigion.

Currently, there is a 25% extra charge on top of the normal level of council tax for second homes and long-term empty properties in the county.

New legislation says the maximum additional Council Tax Premium on second homes and long term empty properties is now 300% instead of 100%.

In Ceredigion, 33,856 properties are responsible for paying council tax. Of these, 2,289 (6.8%) are either second homes or long-term empty properties. Most second homes are located around the coastal areas, with long-term empty properties generally being seen in more urban areas.

Ceredigion County Council wants to hear from you on the future level for these council tax premiums, including what impacts any change could have on local communities, the Welsh language, tourism and the economy.
