Rates and Rating: Caravan Sites

Volume 506: debated on Thursday 4 March 2010

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many Traveller pitches are liable for (a) council tax and (b) business rates; and what estimate the Valuation Office Agency has made of the number of pitches which are not rated either for council tax or business rates. (319016)

No data are available to differentiate Traveller pitches from other caravan pitches treated as dwellings for council tax purposes.

There are currently six Traveller sites subject to non-domestic rating.
