The requested information is outlined in the spreadsheet at the following link.
The information contained therein was collected by my Department further to the issuing of Circular Letter PL 03/2021 on 8 March 2021 requesting the submission of a progress report on the collection of the levy by each local authority. It should be noted that the vacant site levy is collected in arrears. Accordingly, demands for levy payment in respect of 2019 were issued in 2020.
