In the 2017 Spring Budget the Government created a fund to provide support to businesses who had an increase in their rates bill due to the 2017 Revaluation. The Government asked local authorities to design a local scheme for granting support.
The full details of our scheme is available in the Discretionary Business Rates Relief policy: 2017 Revaluation Support.
