03/06/2019Formal Review or Appeal

May, 2019

The Rate List for 2019 has been prepared and is available for inspection at the Parish Hall during normal office hours, from 1st June until 21st June, 2019.

Please read the notes printed with the Notice of Assessment carefully as this will set out the procedure that needs to be followed should you wish to make a formal Review or Appeal.  Should you have any concerns, you must initially discuss these with a member of the Assessment Committee on the following date:

Wednesday 5th June, 2019 from 6.30 p.m. – 8.30 p.m.

It is essential that you telephone 481619 to make an appointment.

Please note the following regarding your Notice of Assessment:

  1. All properties rented furnished are charged entirely to the foncier (owner).
  2. The rate for all properties, whether occupied or not, is charged for the whole year.
  3. The number of quarters shown on the notice will only represent a monetary value once the rate per quarter has been agreed at a Parish Assembly.
  4. As an indication, last year's rate was set at 1.88p per domestic quarter and 2.20p per non-domestic quarter.

    If you think you may find it difficult to pay the full amount when you receive the demand in July, please contact the Parish Hall office now and discuss arranging regular weekly or monthly payments. This will prevent additional charges being added to your account due to a late payment surcharge and/or Petty Debts costs.

    If you are in receipt of Income Support, this benefit contributes to both your rent and rates and it is very important you set up a regular payment with the Parish or save so you can pay your rates account in full to the Parish.

01/03/2019Health, The Environment & the Law

​Now the fine weather has arrived, many of you will be tidying up your gardens and burning the garden waste.

Air pollution in Jersey is an issue that should concern us all; garden bonfires can make it worse and the burning of waste is a common cause of complaint each year. Garden bonfires produce smoke and pollutants which can cause nuisance and be harmful to both health and the environment.

Rather than burning your garden waste it should be taken to the green waste disposal facility at Bellozanne. Other flammable waste such as timber and old fencing should be taken to La Collette bulk waste facility for reclamation or environmentally friendly disposal.

Brief exposure to bonfire emissions is unlikely to have a long-term detrimental effect on health; however, frequent exposure may adversely affect persons suffering from asthma, bronchitis, heart conditions, the elderly, the immuno-suppressed and children.

If a bonfire interferes with normal daily activities such as enjoyment of gardens, hanging out washing or opening windows, the Statutory Nuisances (Jersey) Law 1999 may be able to be used to prevent the nuisance occurring.

The Law on the lighting of bonfires is very strict. Further information is available by logging onto www.gov.je/environmentalhealth where you can download the Bonfire Advice Leaflet.

  
21/01/2019A reminder to complete and return your annual declaration

Article 3(1) of the Law requires you to provide me with details of all the land that you own in the Parish by 15 January 2019.  If you fail to make a return within the time allowed you may be liable to a penalty (maximum £500).

Please read the Notes (available on www.parish.gov.je or from the Parish), complete the form in CAPITALS, correct any errors or omissions, sign the Declaration, and return the form to me. Thank you.

It has come to our attention that glass and crockery is still being disposed of with the main household rubbish.

Please therefore complete Section A and one of the three Surveys 1, 2, or 3. Please only complete one Survey. If you complete more than one Survey your Parish will need to contact you to discuss which one you wish to submit.

If you would like your Parish to hold the details you provide in Section A on their future housing list then please also complete Section B.

All forms can be downloaded from the Parish Housing Needs Survey heading, which can be found on the drop down list on the left hand side.

The results of any Survey will only be used if Section A and one Survey (1, 2 or 3) are completed. Section B is optional. Please only return one completed survey. Please make sure you have signed at question A.7.

03/06/2019Formal Review or Appeal

May, 2019

The Rate List for 2019 has been prepared and is available for inspection at the Parish Hall during normal office hours, from 1st June until 21st June, 2019.

Please read the notes printed with the Notice of Assessment carefully as this will set out the procedure that needs to be followed should you wish to make a formal Review or Appeal.  Should you have any concerns, you must initially discuss these with a member of the Assessment Committee on the following date:

Wednesday 5th June, 2019 from 6.30 p.m. – 8.30 p.m.

It is essential that you telephone 481619 to make an appointment.

Please note the following regarding your Notice of Assessment:

  1. All properties rented furnished are charged entirely to the foncier (owner).
  2. The rate for all properties, whether occupied or not, is charged for the whole year.
  3. The number of quarters shown on the notice will only represent a monetary value once the rate per quarter has been agreed at a Parish Assembly.
  4. As an indication, last year's rate was set at 1.88p per domestic quarter and 2.20p per non-domestic quarter.

    If you think you may find it difficult to pay the full amount when you receive the demand in July, please contact the Parish Hall office now and discuss arranging regular weekly or monthly payments. This will prevent additional charges being added to your account due to a late payment surcharge and/or Petty Debts costs.

    If you are in receipt of Income Support, this benefit contributes to both your rent and rates and it is very important you set up a regular payment with the Parish or save so you can pay your rates account in full to the Parish.

01/03/2019Health, The Environment & the Law

​Now the fine weather has arrived, many of you will be tidying up your gardens and burning the garden waste.

Air pollution in Jersey is an issue that should concern us all; garden bonfires can make it worse and the burning of waste is a common cause of complaint each year. Garden bonfires produce smoke and pollutants which can cause nuisance and be harmful to both health and the environment.

Rather than burning your garden waste it should be taken to the green waste disposal facility at Bellozanne. Other flammable waste such as timber and old fencing should be taken to La Collette bulk waste facility for reclamation or environmentally friendly disposal.

Brief exposure to bonfire emissions is unlikely to have a long-term detrimental effect on health; however, frequent exposure may adversely affect persons suffering from asthma, bronchitis, heart conditions, the elderly, the immuno-suppressed and children.

If a bonfire interferes with normal daily activities such as enjoyment of gardens, hanging out washing or opening windows, the Statutory Nuisances (Jersey) Law 1999 may be able to be used to prevent the nuisance occurring.

The Law on the lighting of bonfires is very strict. Further information is available by logging onto www.gov.je/environmentalhealth where you can download the Bonfire Advice Leaflet.
