Local newspaper discount

Information about the discount for local newspapers

Local newspaper relief was originally a temporary relief for 2017/18 and 2018/19, awarding a grant of £1,500 in line with eligibility criteria set out in guidance produced by Central Government. The relief was then extended a further year 2019/20.
