The PAG considered 4 applications, attached to the report, for Discretionary Rate Relief.
In considering the applications, the PAG were of the opinion that one organisation was seen to already be receiving 80% Mandatory Relief having registered as a charity. One organisation was to be advised to register as a charity to receive 80% Mandatory Relief as a first step, with another seen to be a charity operating on a national basis with substantial funds and assets.
Discretionary rate relief was agreed in regards to one organisation in order to support locally based charities and voluntary organisations.
Having considered the advice of the PAG, the Portfolio Holder RESOLVED to:
1. Refuse the application for Discretionary Rate Relief for 3 organisations.
2. Grant the application for Discretionary Rate Relief from a local organisation.
