To consider an application for Hardship
Cabinet considered an application for Hardship Relief as set out in the report. When granting rate relief on the grounds of hardship consideration was given to whether the ratepayer would sustain hardship if the Council failed to grant relief and whether it was reasonable to grant relief having regard to the interests of persons subject to the Council Tax.
Members considered the application and commented that it was not reasonable to grant hardship relief in this instance, particularly as it was a commercial venture which did not significantly benefit the community.
RESOLVED that the Hardship Relief be not awarded.
