UK floods: 100% relief on council tax and business rates for at least 3 months
The measure was announced following the first meeting of the cross-Whitehall Flood Recovery Taskforce, chaired by Local Government Secretary Robert Jenrick to support communities as they respond to this serious emergency.
Under the measures, households and businesses which have been intensely affected by the flooding will be eligible for 100% relief on their council tax and business rates for at least the next 3 months.
Measures announced today means a home owner in a Band D property in Doncaster could see a saving of over £400 over 3 months helping them back on their feet following the floods. ■
