Executive considered a report of the Portfolio Holder – Finance and Community Safety.  The report sought approval for the proposed write-off of debts in respect of Business Rates, Council Tax, Housing Rents and Overpaid Housing Benefits, which were detailed in Appendix 1 to the report.


Moved by Councillor Clive Moesby and seconded by Councillor Sandra Peake

RESOLVED - that Executive agrees to write-off the amounts summarised at paragraph 1.1 (£129,484) and individually detailed in Appendix 1 to the report.



Writing-off amounts which were no longer collectable was an essential part of the debt management process. 



No other options were considered as all available options to recover the debt had been explored.
