Discretionary Rate Relief

If you currently claim discretionary rate relief under Sections 43, 47 and 48 of the Local Government Finance Act 1988, the appropriate reduction should be detailed on your account.

Your current claim is due to expire at 31 March 2022, however the qualifying period has now been extended to 31 March 2023.

Discretionary rate relief awards may be reviewed in future and ratepayers must consider possible reductions in their award when forward budgeting.

The Local Authority is required to give a year’s notice of any reduction and therefore this notification serves to give the appropriate notice required by law under Regulation 2(3) of the Non-Domestic Rating (Discretionary Relief) Regulations 1989. Should the level of award change, ratepayers will be informed in writing.
