Budget – Update

4th March 2021


Dear Member




A number of documents have been published over the course of the past 24 hours that provide some additional details on the decisions announced in yesterday’s budget.  I have also had a number of questions for members which I answer below in case they are of interest to other members.




A few updates back I sent round a note from Daniel Watney, our property advisers, explaining why it is important to appeal your rateable value as there is a possibility that there could be a rates reduction for buildings that are not being used because of the pandemic.  If you didn’t get that note please get in touch. 



Next Thursday at 10.30am we will be discussing the Gambling Review and the following Thursday at the same time we are holding a webinar on re-opening.



Don’t forget to sponsor our bacta Smilers, who need some added sponsorship to keep turning the legs, peddles or whatever to raise money for the Bacta Charitable Trust.  Just visit our just giving page.   https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/bactamilesforsmiles
