To determine the application for hardship relief on business rates.

(The press and public will be excluded from the meeting during consideration of this item in view of the nature of the proceedings that, if members of the press and public were present during this item, there would be disclosure to them of exempt information as defined in paragraph 3 of Part 1 of Schedule 12A, to the Local Government Act 1972.)



That the hardship relief set out in the confidential minute be awarded.

Reason:   The provision of financial assistance through the hardship relief scheme would help to ensure the venue remains a financially viable proposition.  It is in the interest of the general body of Council Tax payers to maintain the existence of the venue because its loss would result in a reduction in the employment prospects of the Borough and reduce the leisure and cultural amenities of the area.
