A holding website for the impact of the proposed changes to rate relief goes live today in a bid to not only hold information but advise and help individuals and organisations on how they can lobby against them.
Changes to the policy will be implemented from 1 April 2013. The council is currently considering options and assessing impact of policy changes. Any changes to the policy have not yet been ratified by the council’s Cabinet, but this will most likely happen in June.
We know that doing this thing can seem kind of daunting and time consuming, so this website is a tool to try and make it easier and simpler to provide information. Remember as much or as little information you can provide at this stage really can make a difference, please take a look at the website for further details and please note that the email address is voluntary manned they will get back to you but please be patient.
