Revaluation of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown Deferred until 2021

Last updated at 11:02 on 15/05/2020

Due to the impact of COVID-19, the Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government has today (1 May, 2020) agreed with the Commissioner of Valuation that the Commissioner will defer the revaluation of rateable properties in the Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council area until 2021.  

New valuations arising from the revaluation of the rating authority area of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown will now be finalised in September 2021 and become effective for rates purposes from 2022 onwards. This is in line with the timeline for finalisation of new valuations in the Reval 2021 Local Authorities of Clare, Donegal, Galway, Kerry and Mayo County Councils and Galway City Council.

This decision relates specifically to the revaluation of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown, which had been scheduled for completion in 2020, and has no impact beyond that.

A letter has issued to all ratepayers regarding the deferral
