Retention / Variation of Local Property Tax Rate 2016

DLR County Council will meet in September 2015 to consider the setting of a local adjustment factor for the year 2016. Members must decide whether to retain the variation agreed in 2014, agree an alternative variation or apply no variation.

The options available to the elected members for 2016 are (1) Retain the existing level of reduction of -15%. (2) Increase the rate between 1-15% towards the basic rate of 0.18% of the value of the property. (3) Increase the rate between 1-15% above the basic rate of 0.18% of the value of the property.

The Council welcomes submissions from the public on this matter specifically covering the potential effects of retaining the existing variation, or applying an alternative or no variation, on businesses, individuals and on local authority services.

For more information please visit the DLR Co Co website here where there is a submission form.
