Response to this request is delayed. By law, Waverley Borough Council should normally have responded promptly and by (details)

Dear Waverley Borough Council,

I understand that your council publishes information on business/non-domestic rated properties, However the most up to date spreadsheet I can find is from January 2019, which is some considerable time ago.
We therefore request a more up to date 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, Waverley Borough Council

Dear Mr Snowdon,

Apologies for the delay in updating the business rate data on the Waverley

been extremely busy due to unforeseen circumstances.

It is our aim to have the data updated and published on the website by the
end of January 2020.

Many thanks for your patience whilst we undertake this task.

Yours sincerely
