38B Application of rate exemptions under Local Government Act 1993
(1) A council may, by notice in writing to the land holder, exempt from all rates under the Local Government Act 1993 land that is the subject of a Trust agreement.(2) In such a case, section 555 of the Local Government Act 1993 applies in respect of land the subject of the Trust agreement in the same way as it applies in respect of land the subject of a conservation agreement (within the meaning of the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1974).(3) However, a reference in section 555 (3) of the Local Government Act 1993 to a period on or after 1 July 2008 is to be read, in relation to the Trust agreement, as a reference to a period in respect of which the exemption is granted.
