Regarding
Non-domestic rate relief
Request

In each of the individual financial years: 2014/15, 2015/16, 2016/17, 2017/18 and 2018/19.

Numerically how many mandatory reliefs were applied to individual rateable non-domestic properties by your local authority for the reason that the property was unoccupied during each financial year?

For the financial year 2018/19 only:

What was the financial value of mandatory relief applied to non-domestic properties by your local authority during the financial year?

For clarity in relation to question 1. When I refer to the number of mandatory reliefs applied to individual rateable non-domestic properties. I am for example seeking the following: If your local authority are contained 1000 non-domestic rateable properties in 2017/18. And 100 of these properties were at some point given mandatory relief because they were unoccupied, I am looking for the disclosure of information that informs me that during 2017/18, 100 non-domestic properties were given mandatory relief because of their unoccupied status.
