Council Tax / Business Rate Relief After Flooding

People forced to move out of their homes or businesses by the floods may be granted council tax or business rate relief by Cotswold District Council.

For empty and unoccupied properties, the Council is offering up to three months relief on business rates and up to six months on council tax.

The Council estimates at least 600 homes and more than 200 businesses suffered some flooding during the recent emergency. However, it added that not all of these properties were thought to be now unoccupied.

Anyone wishing to make a claim for council tax/business rates relief needs to put their request in writing to Revenues, Cotswold District Council, Trinity Road, Cirencester, GL7 1PX. Householders need to state when they moved out and where they are now living. Businesses need to say when they had to close. Both council tax payers and business ratepayers need to supply a contact telephone number.

If you would like further information before submitting a claim, please call 01285 623033 (Council Tax) or 01285 623034 (business rates).
