Decision Maker: Chief Executive
Decision published: 03/08/2022
Effective from: 02/08/2022
Lead officer: Natalie Brahma-Pearl
The Council has been allocated £5,303,160 to reduce business rates bills to businesses that have been affected by the pandemic but have not been eligible for business grants or reliefs. Delegated approval was given to the Leader of the Council and the Chief Executive as part of the budget strategy report FIN/537 to Cabinet on 24 November 2021. Final guidance was given on 15th December 2021. A joint scheme has been written with Arun, Chichester and Mid Sussex Councils. However the scheme had very little take up. Therefore a revised scheme directly allocating relief to eligible businesses has been agreed across most West Sussex billing councils. This will ensure that the full £5.3m is allocated and reduces bills for businesses across Crawley.

2015 (as amended). Detail of this decision is provided in Report

Decision Maker: Head of Economy and Planning
Decision published: 25/07/2022
Effective from: 22/07/2022
Having considered all representations received during the consultation period, the Head of Economy and Planning in liaison with the Cabinet Member for Planning and Economic Development, is of the view that the Article 4 Directions are justified by robust evidence and are required to ensure there is no adverse impact on the economic role and function of the identified main employment areas or the wider economic function of Crawley. The Article 4 Directions will therefore come into force on 1 August 2022.
