Freedom of Information Requests

Fylde Council receives a number of requests of a similar nature for information which relates to Business Rate accounts (non-domestic properties). To address these requests we are now publishing specific information on:

• New Liabilities for the previous month
• Full list of non-domestic properties within Fylde, with rateable value, property description, liability start and end dates, property address, empty property status and details of any mandatory of discretionary reliefs granted by the Council

We will publish this information on a monthly basis and the latest information is available from the below links. We will not provide individual responses to requests for similar information but will re-direct requests to this page. If the information you request is not published on this page then you can submit a Freedom of Information request to us.

Limitations on data
• We do not provide contact names or address for the companies listed, as this information is available from companies house.
• We do not supply ratepayer telephone numbers or email addresses, as these are deemed to have been supplied to the Council in confidence and for the sole purpose of administering their business rate liability.
• The ratepayer is the person liable to pay the charge. In many cases this is a leaseholder and not an owner. It is not possible to identify the owners from our records. This information is available from the Land Registry.
• Account references are not included as these are personal to the account, and are used to ensure that a ratepayer is actually the account holder when they contact the Council.
• The data is only available electronically, in xlsx format. We will charge for requests for printed material, and payment must be received before the printed material is released.
