Closed petition Welsh Government to amend its NDR relief policy to help keep Debenhams stores open in Wales

The Welsh Government has adopted different NDR Relief policies to England for the retail sector, excluding the small proportion of properties with a rateable value of over £500,000. With Debenhams already in financial trouble this threatens the viability of all their Welsh stores and the future of up to 900 staff. If these stores close it will have a disastrous impact on shopping centres where they are situated, reducing footfall for other retail outlets.
