Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

Under Part II of the Local Government Act 1992, where recommendations for changes to local government in England are made by the Local Government Commission, the Secretary of State may make an order (“a reorganisation order”). The Local Government Changes for England (Finance) Regulations make transitional provision for local authorities subject to a reorganisation order.

These Regulations make amendments to the arrangements for valuation tribunals in areas where the local authorities are affected by structural or boundary changes made by reorganisation orders and which take effect from 1st April 1996. These Regulations amend the Valuation and Community Charge Tribunals Regulations 1989 which established valuation tribunals.

The Humberside, Avon and Cleveland tribunals are renamed, respectively, the East Yorkshire, Severnside and Teesside tribunals. The areas of jurisdiction of these tribunals, together with the Lincolnshire tribunal, are defined by reference to the constituent district councils, or county and district councils. The area of jurisdiction of the North Yorkshire tribunal is that of the county of North Yorkshire disregarding the areas of Selby and York. The constituent district councils are the appointing bodies to the Severnside and Teesside tribunals. Lincolnshire county council and the districts North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire are the appointing bodies to the Lincolnshire tribunal, in a specified ratio. In the case of the East Yorkshire tribunal, North Yorkshire County Council, together with the constituent district councils which have county council functions, are the appointing bodies, also in a specified ratio. Regulation 4 of the 1989 Regulations is amended, and the Schedule to those Regulations is substituted, accordingly (regulation 2).

There are transitional and consequential provisions for the appointment of members (regulation 3) and transferred appeals (regulation 4).
