1. must be made on the approved form [available from the Parish Hall or on www.parish.gov.je]

2. if requesting a Review of the Rateable value, you must provide details of other land in the Island with similar attributes where there is a significant difference [10% of the Rateable value of the land in question or 500 rateable quarters whichever is the greater],

3. must state the name of other land in the Island with similar attributes where there is a significant difference [10% of the proposed rateable value of the land in question or 500 rateable quarters whichever is the greater], and

4. must be made on or before the 12th June to the Assessment Committee at the Parish Hall, La Rue a Don, Grouville.  

An appeal against an assessment may only be made after a Review has been undertaken.

01/03/2017Assistance required for Jerriais Recording Project

Hopefullymany of our Jèrriais-speaking parishioners will be reading this! Some of you will be aware of the recent news that Dr. Mari Jones from Cambridge University, who is Reader in French Linguistics and Language Change (to give her formal title) is leading a project to record Jèrriais this spring/summer onwards. She has been a longstanding friend to Jersey with her great interest in Jèrriais, our native language, now only spoken by less than 5% of Jersey's population. Such has been her interest that she has learnt to speak Jèrriais, really quite fluently!

Starting in April, a team of recorders who themselves speak Jèrriais, want to hear from as many Jèrriais speakers as possible in order to record accent and vocabulary. There are  words and phrases used  in some parishes which may not be used in other parishes! This may not sound very important, but if not recorded by native speakers, they are lost to the printed word only, nowhere nearly as valuable as the spoken word!

So, if you would be willing to have your Jèrriais recorded – it can be speaking to a friend who also speaks Jèrriais or just yourself – please contact Colin Ireson at L'Office du Jèrriais on 449290 or home 726871. Recording can last 10 minutes or half an hour, it's up to you!
