21/06/2019 - Business Rates Retention Pilot Scheme Initiatives - Update

(Report of Chief Executive)


The report set out details of progress on economic regeneration initiatives within the Borough funded by income received from the Business Rates Retention Pilot. Particular reference was made to the Town and District Commercial Frontages Grant Scheme launched at the end of March 2019 and the potential for this to be extended to local centres and parades across the Borough. 


Following consideration by the Economic Regeneration Advisory Board, the Cabinet Member for Economic Regeneration resolved that:


(1)          the content of the report be noted; and


(2)          initial scoping work on a local centres shopfront improvement scheme be undertaken and a report on the scheme, along with a list of other potential initiatives, be submitted to the next meeting of the Advisory Board.
