Dear Residents & Businesses

Following the outcry early this year about the UK Government’s excessive business rate increases for some organisations, especially small businesses, I thought you might like to see this consultation and participate.

Have your say on our Discretionary Business Rates Relief scheme

We would like to hear from business rate payers and residents in Lewes district about whether you agree with our proposed Discretionary Business Rates Relief Scheme.

In the Government’s spring budget of 2017, the Chancellor announced £300 million of extra funding for local authorities to provide discretionary relief to businesses facing increases in their business rate bills following the general revaluation.

Our proposed scheme mirrors the criteria used by Government when allocating the funding.

To have your say please visit our website where the full policy and consultation can be found. 

The consultation will close at 5pm on Sunday 8 October 2017.
