COVID19 : resident and business update

We will continue to keep residents and businesses updated via our website and social media about closures, community groups and more.

More information

Business rates

Various measures to assist businesses were announced by Government.

Business rates don’t have all the details as yet, but we are working with Government and our software suppliers to ensure that this assistance is provided as soon as possible.  

Potential qualifying ratepayers will be contacted when we have all the required information. However, until that time, any payments due for business rates would need to be made. Any overpayments for qualifying ratepayers made will be subsequently refunded. 

Please do not contact the Business Rates team with queries regarding entitlement. Instead please refer to our support for businesses faqs which we are constantly updating. 

Further information can also be obtained via the GOV.UK website.
