I propose to take Questions Nos. 462 and 463 together.

The information requested is outlined in the table below. In this regard, it should be noted that as the vacant site levy is collected in arrears, the information provided is in respect of levy demands issued in respect of 2019 which were collected in 2020 .

All levies due on an individual site will remain a charge on the land concerned until all outstanding levies due are paid. Accordingly, under the vacant site levy provisions, there will be a cumulative effect associated with not activating a site for development purposes for each year that a site remains vacant or idle and in respect of which levy liability is not paid.
