Annotations are used to give authority for changes and other effects on the legislation you are viewing and to convey editorial information. They appear at the foot of the relevant provision or under the associated heading. Annotations are categorised by annotation type, such as F-notes for textual amendments and I-notes for commencement information (a full list can be found in the Editorial Practice Guide). Each annotation is identified by a sequential reference number. For F-notes, M-notes and X-notes, the number also appears in bold superscript at the relevant location in the text. All annotations contain links to the affecting legislation.

3.(1) Where an alteration is made in the [F31NAV list] in consequence of this Part, the district valuer shall serve certificates of the alteration on the persons mentioned in Article 56(8) stating—N.I.

(a)how many caravans occupied by persons other than the site operator are included in the hereditament under this Part, and

(b)how much of the net annual value is attributed to those caravans, together with their pitches.

(2) After receiving a certificate of the alteration under sub-paragraph (1) the site operator shall display a notice on the site from the beginning of April to the end of October in every year so long as the site or part of it is treated as a single hereditament under this Part (but starting with the April following the receipt of the certificate if it is received in October) and shall state in the notice so displayed—

(a)the part of the site included in the hereditament to which the certificate relates (or that the whole of the site is so included);

(b)the facts stated in the certificate under sub-paragraph (1);

(c)the amount in the pound of rate chargeable in respect of the hereditament during the year in which the notice is displayed.

(3) If at any time it appears to the district valuer that the fact stated in a certificate under sub-paragraph (1) or this sub-paragraph are no longer accurate, he shall give to the site operator a further certificate of the alteration bringing the facts so stated up to date; and the certificate or last certificate received by the site operator under this sub-paragraph shall after his receipt of it (or, if it is received in October, then from the beginning of the following April) take the place of the certificate under sub-paragraph (1) for the purposes of sub-paragraph (2)(b).

(4) The notice required by sub-paragraph (2) shall be displayed at some conspicuous place where it is likely to attract the attention of persons occupying pitches for leisure caravans which are included in the hereditament by virtue of this Part.

(5) If so requested by a person occupying any such pitch, the site operator shall give him in writing the information required by sub-paragraph (2) to be given by a notice under that sub-paragraph as the sub-paragraph would apply at the time of the request if a notice were required to be displayed at all times after receipt of a certificate under sub-paragraph (1) and to take account of any certificate received under sub-paragraph (3).

(6) Any site operator who, without reasonable excuse, fails—

(a)to display and keep displayed a notice as required by sub-paragraphs (2) and (4), or

(b)to give information as required by sub-paragraph (5) within one month after a written request from that person,

shall be guilty of an offence and liable on summary conviction to a fine not exceeding[F32 level 3 on the standard scale].]
