Completed petition Petition To Protect Our High Street
We, the undersigned, believe that the Welsh Government’s transitional rate-relief relief scheme is inadequate to meet the needs of businesses affected by the most recent re-valuation of premises and call on the Welsh Government to develop a package of permanent rate-relief measures to alleviate the financial pressure on small businesses.
Many small businesses in Wales will face closure as a result of higher business rates due to mandatory revaluation.
Enhanced Small Business Rate Relief will be available in England from April 2017 – lowering rates and mitigating the impact of revaluation.
We are calling on the Welsh Government to make this relief available to businesses in Wales to protect our High Street.
