Decision Outcome

Noted and considered the options proposed in relation to the collection of rent from the Council’s commercial tenants and occupiers during the Covid 19 pandemic.

 

Noted and agreed to proceed with option 2 in the report:

 

A three-month rent-free period will be offered with effect from March quarter day (25th March). Only to selected smaller businesses (restaurants, hairdressers, non-food retailers, and other tenants unable to trade during the shutdown).  Other tenants may apply and be assessed on a case-by-case basis. They do not ever have to pay the rent back for this period.”

 

THIS DECISION IS EXEMPT FROM CALL-IN.


Additional Information

D15 - General Exception
D16 - Special Urgency

Given the potential economic crisis around the pandemic and the need to manage the Council’s non-residential property portfolio effectively and without prejudicing contractual Landlord and Tenant statutory and contractual obligations, there are clear grounds for extreme urgency and it would not be prudent, nor in the public / taxpayers interest to wait for any of:

 

· 28 days’ notice to be given for a key decision

 

· Five clear days’ notice to be given before the decision is taken

 

· Call in to expire.
