Dear Mr Ball

Thank you for your recent request for information. Please find attached
details 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.  Please note that we are unable to
provide you with details of whether these properties are entitled to
receive small business rate relief only that they are not claiming for
it.  Our system does not record such information and in order to provide
this information we would need to review each of the accounts detailed in
the attached.  Our determination is that this would require us to create
new information which we are not required to do under the Freedom of
Information Act 2000. 

Please also find attached the Small Business Rates Relief application
form, which contains  the criteria for qualifying on the back of the
form.

I trust that we have answered your queries, however if you have any
further questions please do not hesitate to contact us.

If you are unhappy with the response to your request, you may ask for an
internal review. Please contact the Council's Head of Audit, Risk and
Information, Mr Jeff Wring at the Guildhall, High St, Bath BA1 5AW
[1]mailto:[email address].

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you have
the right to appeal directly to the Information Commissioner for a
decision. The Information Commissioner can be contacted at Wycliffe House,
Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF
