Council Tax: Valuation

Volume 507: debated on Monday 15 March 2010

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer with reference to the answer to the hon. Member for Bromley and Chislehurst of 2 November 2009, Official Report, column 758W, on council tax: Bromley, if he will place in the Library a table showing the most recent figures for the number of properties with each individual (a) dwelling house code and (b) value significant code, including codes for (i) type, (ii) number of rooms, (iii) number of bedrooms, (iv) number of bathrooms, (v) number of floors, (vi) floor level, (vii) parking, (viii) garaging, (ix) conservatory type, (x) age, (xi) outbuilding and (xii) modernisation code, for all local authority areas in England; and what figures the Valuation Office Agency holds for such properties in Wales. (319184)

The tables of dwelling house codes and value significant codes for each billing authority have not been updated since publication in October 2009 under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. A copy of the tables was subsequently placed in the Library. The VOA intends to update these tables on an annual basis and will publish revised tables later in 2010 so that publication can conform to the National Statistics code of practice.
