Response

I refer to your E Mail received 21 February 2012. This is acknowledged as a request for information held by this authority under the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act.

I have attached two reports of commercial properties where the liable party are not sole traders. The first report is list of all live business rates accounts with a 2010 list rateable value greater than or equal to £25000. The report includes property reference number, current rateable value, the name of the party liable for the charge, the hereditament address, the correspondence address and the liability start date.

The second report is a list of all live business rates accounts with a 2010 rateable value greater than or equal to £25000 that are currently empty and provides the date the property became empty.

The reports can be cross referenced via “Primary Liable Party” column. I am sorry but we do not hold telephone numbers on our database.
