No, they will not be required to pay the increase if an appeal has been made to the tribunal. If the Tribunal orders that the pitch fee should be increased, it can order that the payment be backdated. This will be payable from the effective date, which is normally the review date. However, the occupier will only be obliged to pay the increase until 28 days after the date of the order made by the Tribunal determining the fee.
