You can apply for a reduction in rates if you are suffering severe hardship. This is normally only granted in extreme cases of hardship and for businesses which are of particular importance to the local community. In each case the Council will take account of the fact that local Council taxpayers will cover part of the cost of the relief.
For further information or to make an application for hardship relief please contact the business rates section on 01992 785504.
You can make an initial application online here but further information may be required.
