Purpose:

The purpose of this report is to seek approval for discretionary charitable relief under section 47 of the Local Government Finance Act 1988

Decision:

That the application for discretionary relief under section 47 of the Local Government Finance Act 1988 is allowed at a rate of 20% of the annual National Non-Domestic Rates due.

Reasons for the decision:

The main objectives of the organisation are aligned with the Council’s objectives to conserve, enhance, promote and celebrate our heritage, as stated in the Gedling Plan 2020 – 2023

Alternative options considered:

An alternative to the proposal would be to refuse relief.
Another alternative to the proposal would be to grant relief at a different rate to the proposed 20%. Relief could be granted at any rate between 1% and 20%. This alternative is not proposed as it is considered that the charity’s objectives are suitably aligned with the Council’s plan to afford a grant of relief at 20%
