The purpose of the scheme is to help ratepayers who would otherwise face sudden increases in District Rates.
The consultation sought views on the following:
- The eligibility criteria for the scheme;
- The duration of the scheme;
- The level of relief to be provided each year.
In response to early feedback from Local Government Officials, a technical annex was also produced with tables showing more analysis on the phasing in options. These tables provided a more detailed breakdown of the high level figure work presented in the consultation paper.
