A confidence and vibrancy is returning to the streets across our city and towns. We urge the council to adopt policies that enable this business growth not hamper job creation opportunities.”Acknowledging that many businesses continue to struggle with legacy commercial rate debt issues, Dr Ring urged them “to engage with the local authority and negotiate a repayment schedule”.In advance of the local authority budget meeting for 2016, Dr Ring reminded elected representatives that “an increase in rates penalises those who are paying to subsidise those businesses that are not up to date with their payments”.Last week, the City and County Council issued 27 summonses to local business owners for non-payment of commercial rates. A spokesman for the council said that some of the cases had been cleared and payment plans agreed in other instances.
