Dear Aylesbury Vale District Council,

I understand that your council regularly publishes information on business/non-domestic rated properties, However recent datasets do not confirm whether properties in your area are subject to Retail Relief/Discount.
We therefore request a list detailing all current Rateable Value assessments and which accounts are, and which are not, subject to some form rate relief (eg. Small Business Rate Relief (SBRR), charitable, empty relief, retail relief). Please include the following columns insofar as possible.
• Full Postal Address
• Rating Description (e.g. offices, workshop etc.)
• Correspondence Address (if different from Full Postal Address)
• Account Name
• Account No./Ref.
• Property Ref
• RV 2017
• RV 2010
• SBRR (discount, not multiplier) – yes or no
• Retail Relief/Discount – yes or no
• Vacant – yes or no
• Other relief (e.g. charity, hardship, rural, community & amateur sports clubs etc.) – yes or no
• Current liability start date

Yours faithfully,

Tom Snowdon

Aylesbury Vale District Council

Dear Aylesbury Vale District Council,

Whist I am obviously disappointed that I have still not received a response to my request, long after it was due, I have noticed that the latest business rates data you produced on your website (dated 28 October 2019) does now contain the information I require, particularly with regards to retail relief, that I could not see as being present at the time when I made this request.

You may consider the matter closed.

Yours sincerely,

Tom Snowdon

Dear Mr Snowdon
Please accept our sincere apologies that you were never sent a response. 
We are sorry for any inconvenience caused.
We are pleased however that our website has now been updated and you have
the information you require.  Thank you also for taking the time to
confirm that we can close down your request.
Even though we are closing down the request, you still have a right to
request an Internal Review (complaint) about the matter should you wish to
do so.  Requests for an Internal Review should be sent to Jackie Binning,
Data Governance Manager at the address shown below or by email to
[email address].
You also have the right to complain directly to the Information
Commissioner's Office (ICO) although the Information Commissioner would
normally expect a complainant to have exhausted a public authority's
internal procedures first.
Further details can be found on the ICO website:
