We act for a theatre company who operate a number of theatres around the south east of England, many under management agreements with the local authority. They are seeking to grow their business.
We are interested in theatres in your area and whether they receive any rate relief under section 47 Local Government Finance Act 1988. Will you please accept this email as an application under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 for particulars of all theatres in your area which receive rate relief. Please specify the address of the theatre, the name of the occupier and whether they receive mandatory rate relief and/or discretionary rate relief and if the latter the amount of that relief.
I refer to your E Mail dated 10 July 2012. This is acknowledged as a request for information held by this authority under the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act.
I can advise that the only Theatre in our borough is: Brentwood Theatre Trust, R/o 15b Shenfield Road, Brentwood, Essex, CM15 8AA and that they receive 80% Mandatory Rate Relief and 20% Discretionary Rate Relief.
