To correspond with the answer of 6 July 2009, Hansard, column 605W, the information provided is in respect of valid rating appeals received 1 April 2004 to 31 March 2009 and settled as at 30 June 2009.

The period covers the:

2000 Rating Lists-effective 1 April 2000 to 31 March 2005

2005 Rating Lists-effective 1 April 2005 to 31 March 2010

The compiled list statistics shows overall reduction in rateable value resulting from appeals against the compiled rating list entries, i.e. appeals challenging the original entries in the rating lists, effective from either 1 April 2000 or 1 April 2005.

The column labelled "others" shows the reduction in rateable value resulting from all other appeals. These are appeals where circumstances have changed since the lists were compiled and the rating assessment requires amendment.
