Hardship relief

The council may reduce business rates where the rate payer would otherwise sustain hardship, and where it would be in the interests of the community to do so.

All applications will be considered on their merits, and it will be for the applicants to demonstrate both hardship, and the value to the local community of the services they provide.

The council would expect to grant relief in rural or other areas where the local community is served by not more than two businesses of the nature of that operated by the applicant.
