This release includes details of number of properties by Council Tax band at various geographic levels (national, regional, Local authority district, Westminster parliamentary constituency and lower and middle layer super output areas) together with breakdowns by property type (including bedroom count) and build period.
The counts are calculated from domestic property data for England and Wales extracted from the Valuation Office Agency’s (VOA) administrative database on 31 March 2015. Data on property types and number of bedrooms have been used to form property categories by which to view the data and data on build period has been used to create property build period categories.
