The technical term is a ‘Material Change in Circumstances’ (MCC) – a physical change in the locality which may be cited as a reason to alter an existing assessment in the Rating List, leading to a change in Rateable Value following a Valuation Office Notice or a ratepayer proposal. 

A MCC gives rise to fresh and specific grounds of appeal against an entry in the Rating List, which is why it’s so important to regularly assess the business rates you pay or engage with a rating agent who can monitor on your behalf.
