Wadebridge refugee group calls Ombudsman in rates battle with council

Posted By on 18th October 2016

The Wadebridge refugee support group is calling in the Local Government Ombudsman to investigate Cornwall Council’s demand for £1,600 business rates.

The group claims the council is acting unfairly by not applying “100% discretionary relief” to its occupation of a small industrial unit on the outskirts of town.  The council says it has already applied a generous discount and has to be consistent in the way it treats similar organisations.
