Discretionary Rate Relief

In certain circumstances the Council has the discretion to award rate relief to reduce a ratepayer’s non-domestic rates bill.  The Council has agreed a policy that sets out how it will use this power with the intention of making awards fairly, consistently and transparently, given the resources available to the Council and the interests of local taxpayers.


It is good practice to review the policy from time to time and it is proposed to make minor changes to the policy with effect from 1 April 2017.  The Council wishes to hear the views of ratepayers and residents regarding the proposed policy so that they can be considered by the Executive when it makes a final decision about the policy.
