Welsh Government Consultation

25 Feb 2015

The Welsh Government has announced a consultation on developing a new landfill disposals tax for Wales.

The proposals are being developed for implementation following devolution of tax raising powers to the Welsh Assembly from 1 April 2018 under the Wales Act 2014.

A chapter of the consultation is devoted to options for the Landfill Communities Fund in Wales from 1 April 2018.  The questions in this chapter focus upon whether a proportion of the new Welsh Landfill Disposal tax revenue should be allocated to enhance the wellbeing of communities in Wales and, if so, how this could be achieved. 

The consultation opened on 24 February 2015 and will close on 19 May 2015. 

Details of the consultation and how to respond are found on the Welsh Government’s website.
