Complete Non-Residential / Business Property Rates Data

Gavin Chait made this Freedom of Information request to Ryedale District Council as part of a batch sent to 21 authorities

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Ryedale District Council,

In terms of the Freedom of Information Act of 2000, could you please provide me with a complete and up-to-date list of all business (non-residential) property rates data for your local authority, and including the following fields:

- Billing Authority Code
- Firm's Trading Name (i.e. property occupant)
- Full Property Address (Number, Street, Postal Code, Town)
- Occupied / Vacant
- Date of Occupation / Vacancy
- Actual annual rates charged (in Pounds)

I appreciate that properties owned / rented by individuals are personal information and such personal data (i.e. the Firm's Trading Name) would be excluded from my request in terms of Section 40(2) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000. In such cases, please provide the remaining information with the Firm's Trading Name either blank or listed as 'individual'.

Please provide this as machine-readable as either a CSV or Microsoft Excel file, capable of re-use, and under terms of the Open Government Licence.

I am compiling a comprehensive time-series database of business activity across the UK and will require the dataset updated on a quarterly basis. Some 20% of local authorities already provide this dataset (and a total of 30% of local authorities provide a subset of these data) on a monthly to quarterly basis on a dedicated page on their websites or on an open data service. I would appreciate it if you could do the same.

Thank you and kind regards

Gavin Chait

Dear foi,

Thank you for the data provided, however, there are no fields to identify which properties are occupied or not.

In terms of my original request, is there any way to provide a clear indication of occupancy? Or provide only a list of occupied premises (i.e. exclude all vacant premises from your list), but with the same fields:

- Billing Authority Code
- Firm's Trading Name (i.e. property occupant)
- Full Property Address of the Business Premises (Number, Street, Postal Code, Town)
- Date of Occupation
- Actual annual rates charged (in Pounds)

Yours sincerely,

Gavin Chait

foi, Ryedale District Council
