Invitation to comment

Section 65 of the Local Government Finance Act, 1992, requires the Council to make arrangements to consult persons, or bodies, who are representative of persons subject to non-domestic rates in the area, about proposals for expenditure for the forthcoming year.

Non-domestic ratepayers have a direct interest in the level and costs of local services, in the economy and efficiency with which services are provided, and in value for money. They may also have a wider interest in the nature of the services which authorities provide.

Consultation is therefore being sought from key representatives of non-domestic ratepayers

Your views matter to us and consultation is intended to provide a focus for a constructive and continuing dialogue between authorities and representatives of non-domestic ratepayers on all these matters and to foster a spirit of partnership in which both sides recognise the need for mutual co-operation.

Written responses should be submitted to the Chief Executive by 12 Noon on Thursday, 27th February 2020.
