Many small and large businesses across the Cotswolds are struggling with high business rates. Despite a range of rate relief available to some businesses the mix of high rents, the shift online, a rise in inflation and parking pressures mean that many businesses in the Cotswolds including the high street stalwarts of old have had to run even faster to stay still.
Whilst Cotswold District Council collect business rates it is in fact the government that sets rates. More information here.
Please support our campaign by signing our petition which calls on Government to cut business rates to help support struggling businesses across the Cotswolds.
