Reduce business rates in town centres and increase them in out of town parks

Comment 20th July 2010

Town centres all over the UK are dying and rates in many towns are prohibitive. I propose that town centre businesses have a reduced rating, as much as two thirds reduction. The lost revenue should be levied on to the out of town business and retail parks. They should also be taxed on the amount of cars they allow free parking for per annum.

The big multiples are simply being allowed to plunder opur towns just as the big banks are allowed to plunder our finances

Why does this matter?

This proposal would do something positive to re generate town centres. The ugly American style out of town parks are not paying their fair share of rates /taxes bearing in mind the  infrastructure upheaval; traffic management and massive profits being made compared to town centres.
