(This note is not part of the Order)
The Valuation Timetable (Scotland) Order 1995 prescribes dates on which, and periods within which, various things require to be done in relation to valuation rolls coming into force on or after 1st April 1995. This Order amends that Order as regards the last date for the disposal by a valuation appeal committee of appeals and complaints lodged with it. Previously that date was to be in each case the latest of three dates, one of which was 31st March in the second financial year following the year of revaluation. This Order substitutes for that date a reference to 31st December in the third financial year following the year of revaluation.
1956 c. 60; section 13(1) was extended by the Local Government (Financial Provisions) (Scotland) Act 1963 (c. 12), section 22(d) and amended by the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1975 (c. 30), Schedule 6, paragraph 20(a).
