FOI request (FOI-72478486)
Discretionary non-domestic rates relief
Requested Tue 10 April 2018
Responded Mon 16 April 2018
I'm writing to you under the Freedom of Information Act to request information on the distribution of discretionary rates relief (AKA local discretionary relief scheme, NDRR and Revaluation relief Scheme). To clarify, this relates to the council's share of the £300m fund for transitionary rates relief made available by the government at the Spring Budget 2017, not discretionary relief given out under the The Non-Domestic Rating (Discretionary Relief) Regulations 1989 - as this mainly relates to charities.
I would like to know:
- How much of the council's allocated discretionary rates relief funding for the year 2017-2018 was distributed
- How much of the council's allocated discretionary rates relief funding for the year 2017-2018 remained unspent following the April 1 2018 cut-off point
- How many businesses received discretionary rates relief for the year 2017-2018
Q1 - £230,000
Q2 - Nil
Q3 - 283
