Thoresby Estate has faced the financial challenge of very high business rates charges on the Market Field for some time now. An appeal was lodged in 2013, with the Valuation Office, against the level of business rates. Unfortunately, the Valuation Office has recently advised that the existing business rates assessment is correct and there is no scope for any decrease.
The current level of business rates makes the market unsustainable and as a result, the Estate has, unfortunately, been left with no other choice but to close Thoresby Sunday Market.
Thoresby Estate would like to sincerely thank you for your support of the Market over the years and help in generating our little community. It is extremely disappointing that something beyond our control has forced the Estate to close the market.
