The Valuation Roll & Council Tax List:

We shall continue to process requests to alter the Valuation Roll for non-domestic properties or the council tax Valuation List for domestic property. If you have a new or altered property please let us know and we will make every effort to add or amend the entry in the Valuation Roll or the Valuation List. However, there may be occasions where this will need to wait until we can inspect the property or have access to other necessary information, in those circumstances please make financial provision for the receipt of a backdated bill from your appropriate authority.

If you have an appeal cited for a hearing before the Local Valuation Appeal Committee hearing our surveyors may be in touch to attempt to progress your appeal. If your appeal cannot be progressed it will be continued to a date to be confirmed by the Secretary to the Panel in due course.
