SLCC is joining NALC in supporting Falmouth Town Council, which will be submitting a proposal under the Sustainable Communities Act for legislative change to grant Parish and Town Councils in mandatory 100% business rates relief on public toilets that they own or manage.
We believe that such a removal of business rates would improve economic, social and environmental wellbeing, as they are an unwanted price tag around many assets and liabilities transferred to parishes by principal local authorities unable to run them any longer. The Government have asked that Falmouth support the request with evidence that the change is required. To that end, we would be grateful if you could complete a short survey by 15th December 2017 (the Town Council hope to submit their proposal to DCLG with their evidence report by Christmas). It will take just 5 minutes to complete.

Thank you for your time.
