When does an existing building qualify as a 'Vacant Building' in respect of the 'Vacant Building Credit'?

A building is considered 'Vacant' in respect of the 'Vacant Building Credit' if at the time planning application is determined the building does not have a lawful occupier or tenant. Applicants may wish to provide, as part of their application, evidence to the Council relating to the occupancy of the buildings at the intended date of determination to assist the calculation of the 'Vacant Building Credit'.
