Chapter 15 Part 3A
Part 3A Charges
531A   Adjustment of charges following change in category
If the amount of a charge paid or payable by a person is determined by reference (or partly by reference) to a category or sub-category of land declared by the council under Part 3, the council must make an appropriate adjustment of the charge following a change in category or sub-category of the land.
531B   Aggregation of certain parcels subject to a charge
(1)  If the council is of the opinion that the levying of a charge—
(a)  would apply unfairly, and
(b)  could cause hardship to a person who is liable to the charge in respect of two or more separate parcels of land,
it may treat the parcels as being a single parcel and levy the charge accordingly.
(2)  Separate parcels may be treated as being a single parcel under this section only if each separate parcel is subject to the same category or sub-category declared by the council under Part 3.
(3)  A council must not treat separate parcels as being a single parcel under this section—
(a)  if each parcel is a parcel on which a dwelling is erected or a parcel that comprises (or substantially comprises) a dwelling in a residential flat building, or
(b)  if the parcels are a combination of parcels referred to in paragraph (a).
