Discretionary rate relief
Richmondshire District Council has approved a policy to award rate relief to businesses whose bills have increased the most following the rate revaluation.
Council officers will be contacting businesses affected to take them through the application process - and make sure the full award is offered.
This scheme is on top of reliefs announced by the Government in Spring which has already seen 56 pubs receive relief of up to £1,000 and 41 small businesses allocated ‘supporting small business relief’.
Members of Full Council approved the new scheme at their meeting on Tuesday (October17).
