Council Offers Financial Assistance to CBD Businesses

Newcastle City Council has confirmed they will be offering financial assistance to businesses affected by the construction of the light rail network.

The Council will be providing a rebate for half of the City Centre Special Rate for the 2018-19 financial year.

The assistance is available to the tenants of a property or the property owners, provided the rebate is passed on to the leasing business.

Application forms can be found on the Council’s website.
