Using the Land Valuations Globe

The Land Valuations Globe is a way to view annual statutory land valuation data. It is designed to help you better understand your land valuation and local property market.

Note: This globe displays land valuations for the 28 local authorities receiving annual land valuations in 2017, plus the current valuations for the remaining local authorities. Due to changes that occur throughout the year, the information presented (for some properties) may not be current. Up to date valuation information can be purchased through our business centres.

Before starting, please read the statutory land valuation process and the 2017 valuation program.
