Latest News - Bishopbriggs Council Tax Banding Review


Recent press articles have reported that a number of houses in Bishopbriggs may have had the wrong Council Tax applied to them at the inception of the tax in 1993.



It is correct that, as a consequence of Valuation Appeal Committee decisions, the bands applied to some 3-bedroom, semi-detached houses built by ‘Wimpey’ in Bishopbriggs South/Ward 6 area of the town are under review. It is apparent from the decisions of the Committee that Band E is no longer sustainable for certain types of ‘as built’ un-extended houses in these areas.


In many cases an inspection of each property will be required before a decision can be made on whether the Council Tax band is to be maintained or reduced. As a result, staff from this office will need to inspect hundreds of houses. Resources have recently been diverted away from other functions in an attempt to be pro-active in amending bands without the need for appeals to be submitted but the task will still take time and council taxpayers who are affected are urged to be patient as this process is carried out.
