Dear Mr Ball

Your request of 4th January 2010 has now been considered under the Freedom
of Information Act 2000. My reasonable enquiries have included a review of
all aspects of your request and these are responded to in the attached
spreadsheet.

(a) addresses and rateable values of Commercial properties that are
within your District Council up to a rateable value of £11,000 who are
eligible for, but not currently receiving small business rate
relief;

Details of addresses and rateable values are provided on the attached.
However, please be aware that although these businesses appear on the
attached spreadsheet, this does not mean that they would necessarily be
eligible for any Small Business Rate Relief. Each company would need to
make a written application to the Local Authority, who would then make a
decision as to whether a Small Business Rate Relief would be applicable
or not, dependant on the individual circumstances of the application.

(b) the names of the owners of those properties referred to in (a)

Please see attached spreadsheet
