The relief fund is available for any property that is predominately or exclusively used for retail, hospitality or leisure. 

Applications for this relief fund can be made at any time, but rates given on your demand notice should be paid until your application is received and assessed.

Successful applicants will be given 50% relief for the period 1 April 2022 to 30 June 2022. This is capped at £27,500 per ratepayer. You have to declare you do not exceed £27,500 of the relief award. We will reclaim any relief that has been awarded on incomplete, incorrect or fraudulent information.
