Business Rates Retention Consultation PC11-16

Provisional Response Position Of NALC

The National Association will be responding to this consultation and arguing that parishes should be exempted from payment of National Non Domestic Rates on buildings they own or manage including public conveniences. We will also be arguing that Government and the LGA need to at this time of onward devolution strongly encourage principal authorities to engage in formal agency and service level agreements and contracts with parishes in their areas so that parishes too can derive some of the windfall from this 100% local retention of the business rate – to plough back into their communities.

This consultation closes on 26 September, 2016.

Please send comments you may have to inform NALC's own response - to chris.borg@nalc.gov.uk by at the latest 09:00 a.m. on Wednesday, 21 September, 2016.

Larger Councils Transparency Code Consultation Response PR13-16

The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) is the nationally recognised membership and support organisation representing the interests of around 9,000 parish and town councils and many parish meetings in England.

NALC's overall response is that whilst we still support the principles of the larger councils' transparency code, some of the aspects of the proposed changes to the code would be onerous for larger parishes if they applied by default to the parish sector. The sense we are currently getting is that the current code requirements for larger parish councils are not causing significant problems for parishes – but some of the proposed changes might.
