Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)
Under paragraph 3(2) of Schedule 6 to the Local Government Finance Act 1988, the Secretary of State may by order provide that, in the case of non-domestic hereditaments to be shown in the central rating lists for England and Wales (“central list hereditaments”), the basis of valuation contained in paragraphs 2 to 2B of Schedule 6 shall not apply, and that instead their rateable value shall be such as is specified, or determined in accordance with rules set out, in the Order.
The Electricity Supply Industry (Rateable Values) Order 1994 (as amended by S.I. 1995/962) prescribes rateable values for electricity generation, transmission and supply hereditaments. This Order amends it to reflect changes taking place in the electricity industry and the coming into existence on 31st March 1996 of AGR & PWR Co. Limited.
The Water Undertakers (Rateable Values) Order 1994 prescribes rateable values for water supply hereditaments. This Order alters the value of the hereditaments occupied by Bournemouth and West Hampshire Water plc on 1st April 1996.
