Scunthorpe's second oldest club to take council to tribunal over business rates

By Scunthorpe Telegraph | Posted: 17 Mar 2017

Officials at Scunthorpe's second oldest club Mill Road are to take North Lincolnshire Council to a Valuation Tribunal over the bill for business rates.

The challenge comes as the annual bill for the club, founded in 1908, has soared to more than £10,500.

The tribunal panel will sit in Doncaster in July.

Mill Road secretary Andy Crellin said the club's case for a reduction would be based on usage of the concert room and the car park.

More details about the appeal will be revealed to the members at the annual general meeting on April 1, at 10.30am.

Officials are expected to announce a trading surplus of around £8,000 in line with last year's results.
