As detailed in the recommendations.


Councillor Mullin introduced the report and explained tht setting of the Council Tax Base was integral to the revenue budget and Council Tax setting process for 2022/23 and allowed the Council, Police & Crime Commissioners Office for North Wales and Town and Community Councils to calculate next year’s Council Tax precept.


            The Revenues and Procurement Manager said the Base had been calculated at 65,194 Band ‘D’ equivalent properties, after taking into account the total number of properties that would be subject to Council Tax, less those which were exempt from Council Tax or where statutory household discounts applied.


            Setting in the Tax Base at 65,194 Band ‘D’ equivalents also represented marginal growth in the Tax Base of 0.26% compared to the previous year, equivalent to an increase of 168 Band ‘D’ equivalent properties after taking into account the natural movement in discount and exemption levels.




(a)       That the Tax Base of 65,194 Band ‘D’ equivalent properties for tax setting purposes for the financial year 2022/23 be approved;


(b)       That a ‘nil’ discount continue to be set for properties falling within any of the Prescribed Classes (A, B or C) and for this to apply to the whole of the County area; and


(c)        That a 50% Premium continue to be set for 2022/23 on long term empty properties and second homes falling into the Council Tax Premium scheme.
