The new rates assessments will come into force on 1 April 2017 and you will have a fresh right of appeal from that date.

In many instances, Nursery values have increased significantly and in some cases they have more than doubled. This could present adverse circumstances for a number operators, at least until an appeal can be heard (up to 2 years) and the value potentially reduced thereafter resulting in reduced payments.

Using both our nursery market knowledge and our rates experience, Walton HPC has managed to achieve significant rates savings on behalf of several CDN sector clients.

The attached flyer (below right) shows a small selection of the numerous successful outcomes we have achieved for CDN sector clients. Also visit us at for further information.
