Dear Mr Egan

 

I have received your Freedom of Information request:

 

Please provide a complete list of business addresses and their occupiers

small business rate relief.

 

Please also list their property

liable from and indicate if the account is live or not.

 

Please can you ensure this information is accurate and up to date

 

In order to gather the information you have requested, can you confirm
what you mean by if the account is live or not?

 

Would this be whether or not the ratepayer is still resident?

 

If you could confirm this to the email address above, I will ask the
Revenues department to begin gathering the information you have requested.

 

Regards

 

George Bowen

I am responding to your request for information held by the Council under

rateable values. This has been referred to an appropriate officer within
the Revenues Team,  who has provided the following data in order to answer
your enquiry.

 

Please provide a complete list of business addresses and their occupiers
with rateable values between £2,000 and £12,000 that are NOT in receipt of
small business rate relief.

 

Please also list their property

description, actual liability (i.e. rates payable), what date they are
liable from and indicate if the account is live or not.

 

Please can you ensure this information is accurate and up to date.

provide charge details at it would mean manually checking each individual
