General Exception applies as details received on 5 September 2018 and decision required by 22 September 2018.  Chairman of Overview and Scrutiny Committee advised 6 September 2018.




That the submission of a bid to the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government for the Council to take part in the 2019/20 pilot for 75% Business Rate retention be approved.




If taxation receipts grow faster than spending on additional responsibilities, a successful bid should result in a greater share of local taxation being retained in the area, for the benefit of residents and service users.
