Benchmark Furniture Ltd Re: Tealgate Charnham Park (RATING – procedure – appeal to VTE – whether notice of hearing received) [2018] UKUT 170 (LC) (5 July 2018)


Summary: Following the failure to file a statement of case the VTE struck out the proceedings, although the ratepayer had apparently not received notice of the hearing and was, therefore, unaware of the requirement. The Upper Tribunal was critical of this approach, as the VTE had not dealt with the substance of the appellant’s case for reinstatement, and it granted the appeal, directing a fresh hearing.
