Appeals against Penalty Notices

Why are penalty notices imposed?

The council can imposes a penalty on you for failing to supply information, supplying false information, or failing to notify the council regarding a discount, exemption or empty homes premium; however, you can appeal the council’s decision.

When to appeal

Initially, you should write to the council to explain why you feel the Penalty Notice is incorrect. We will then review our decision and advise you accordingly.

If you are still aggrieved by the council’s decision to impose a penalty you can then appeal direct to the independent Valuation Tribunal at:

Valuation Tribunal Office Doncaster
Hepworth House
2 Trafford Court
Doncaster
Yorkshire
DN1 1PN

Telephone: 01302 342324
Facsimile: 01302 321447
Email: [email protected]

Further information

You can find more information on the Valuation Tribunals website.

You must appeal to the Valuation Tribunal within 28 days of your receipt of the Penalty Notice. It is helpful if you include a copy of the Penalty Notice with your appeal.
