Additional documents:


The Corporate Portfolio Holder presented the report to members. He outlined the relief fund for businesses which the Government had announced in 2021 and which would be available for businesses which had been ineligible in the past. It was noted that whilst the Government had set out the main criteria, local authorities had been invited to formulate their own policy in how the money would be distributed to small, local businesses.


It was moved by Councillor N Rushton, seconded by Councillor T Gillard and




1)    The Council’s CARF Policy and operation as set out in the report and accompanying full policy terms and conditions in Appendix 1 be agreed.

2)    Authority be delegated to the Council’s S151 Officer to make any subsequent changes to the relief award percentages and to award/apply reliefs to business rate accounts.


Reason for Decision:


To comply with the Constitution.
