National non-domestic rates (NNDR) discretionary rate relief policy - rate relief for businesses

Right of appeal

The amount of any award is at our discretion and we may only grant relief if it would be reasonable to do so having regard to the interests of council tax payers in our area.

No formal right of appeal therefore exists however an applicant may put in a request for the decision to be reviewed.

Any request for such a review must be in writing, detailing the reasons why the decision should be reviewed, and must be received within one calendar month of the above notification.

The Executive Director (Resources and Support Services) alongside the portfolio holder for Finance, ICT and Customer Services will review all the evidence held and will make a decision within 21 days of referral or as soon as practicable thereafter.
