Rent relief for commercial council tenants

We announced 3 months rent relief for voluntary and community sector organisations that rent council properties and most businesses (including hairdressers, cafes, restaurants and non-food retail outlets).

The 3-month rent relief period has now finished.

Further support is being assessed on a case by case basis. The Council can change quarterly payments to monthly payments and, where needed, agree deferred payment plans. Council tenants should apply to Sanderson Weatherall to discuss the options. Please refer to your rent demand or tenants handbook for contact details.
