P-05-1150 Provide business rates holiday to holiday home sites in wales, the same as England



This petition was submitted by Denise Evans, having collected a total of 640 signatures.


Text of Petition:                     

In March 2020 the UK Government announced a rates holiday for hospitality and leisure industry. alongside Scotland, the welsh government then set up rates relief for businesses under the rateable value of 500k. Quite a few holiday sites were excluded from the rates holiday, due to their rateable value over 500k. The majority of these sites split the rates bill between its caravan owners, which we would not be able to benefit from the relief at this troubling time and are desperately in need of it. we all respect the Welsh government choice to close borders and restrict the amount of transmission. But in return we would like to request the help of the welsh government by applying the no cap rate limit to the rates, to assist holiday home owners, due to not being able to access it. so we get the same rules that England have applied.
