FOI request (FOI221146)
Business Rates Relief Scheme
Requested Fri 04 August 2017
Responded Fri 04 August 2017
I would like to submit an FOI request regarding the Business Rates Relief Scheme announced in the March 2017 Budget, which allocates £300 million to local authorities over four years from 2017-18.
Regarding the Scheme, I would like to know:
- whether your council has already begun distributing to local businesses the funding made available for 2017-18 as part of the Relief Scheme?
- If the answer to (a) is yes, how much (in £s) has already been allocated to local businesses?
Hastings Borough Council has not distributed the funding in respect of the discretionary relief announced in the budget 2017. We are currently working on our policy and analysing which local businesses should get the assistance.
