Department of Housing, Planning, and Local Government
Non-Principal Private Residence Charge Administration
I wish to reiterate that the Non Principal Private Residence (NPPR) charge is under the care and management of each local authority and application of the NPPR in individual cases is a matter for the local authority concerned. As Minister, I have no role in determining liability in individual NPPR cases and no role in reviewing decisions of local authorities.
Notwithstanding that, I replied to the Deputy's correspondence on this matter last week.
