Edinburgh Office Awarded Rate Cut in Groundbreaking Decision

Leading property consultant GVA Grimley has won an appeal that could see a business rate reduction of 5 per cent for hundreds of offices on the route of Edinburgh’s new tram system.

The landmark decision was taken after the firm, acting on behalf of a client based on the city’s Shandwick Place, successfully argued that offices on the route – which also takes in Leith Walk, Princes Street and St. Andrew’s Square – faced a general level of disruption.

Shandwick Place was closed to traffic in March 2008 before being reopened in July of the same year.
