Second homes tax yields cash

Have your say

Housing projects in Amber Valley will benefit from nearly £320,000 of council tax paid on second homes over the next three years.

Amber Valley Borough Council has received £79,000, and a further £80,000 for each of the next two years, which will be spent on projects including providing housing support and advice to local residents and funding aids and adaptations in people’s homes.

More than £1.5 million will be generated across Amber Valley, Derbyshire Dales, High Peak and South Derbyshire over the next three years from the programme which sees people owning properties classed as second homes paying 90 per cent of the total council tax for them.
