Dear Sir/Madam

THE TOWN AND COUNTRY PLANNING (LIMIT OF ANNUAL VALUE) (SCOTLAND) ORDER 2001

Introduction

1. This Circular explains the provisions of the Town and Country Planning (Limit of Annual Value) (Scotland) Order 2001. The Order was made on 23 April 2001 and comes into force on 1 June 2001.

2. A copy of the Order is enclosed for planning authorities only.

Background

3. The 2001 Order prescribes £24,725 as the annual value of the hereditament for the purpose of sections 100 - 122 of the Town and Country Planning (Scotland) Act 1997. Under those sections, owner-occupiers can, in certain circumstances, require the appropriate authority to purchase their interest in property provided that, in the case of a non-resident owner-occupier, the annual value of the non-domestic property does not exceed the prescribed amount.

4. The Town and Country Planning (Limit of Annual Value) (Scotland) Order 1995 which prescribed a limit of £21,500 is revoked. This Circular supersedes SODD 23/1995 which accompanied the 1995 Order.
