Putting a value on members of the appeal panel

With reference to the article in last week’s Southern regarding the Scottish Borders Valuation Appeal Panel, the committee comprises the chairperson and between three and six members.

They are all unpaid and independent of the assessor. Members are appointed by the Sheriff Principal. Members must reside in, be engaged in business or be employed in the Scottish Borders Council valuation area.

If anyone is interested in applying to be appointed as a member the Valuation Appeal Panel, they are invited to send an application to me, as secretary to the panel, at the address below.
