Inspection of Third Valuation Roll Extended to 16th May
 
Good news for property owners, you now have a further extended period to submit an objection to the third Valuation Roll released in February, should you wish to do so.
 
A report, tabled at the Executive Committee meeting held on 25 April, stated that the initial closing date for objections was 31 March 2017. The period was then extended to 2 May before being extended by another two weeks to ensure ample opportunity for all property owners to submit an objection if necessary.
