Bringing People Together
In response to a posting on Hampton Online by Cllr. Roberts under the 'Community Columnists' section the issue he raised was regarding value for money on a proposed RuT Council Consultation. May i suggest the envelopes to each household contain additional papers whereby residents can bring to the Councils attention areas within the Borough that give cause for concern especially Benefit Fraud where people claim 25% discount on supposed single (adult) occupancy of an individual property.It would be interesting to know how many homes in the Borough claim this discount although under the guise of Data Protection we would surely be denied the answer.
Does the Council carry out any checks on these homes or do they just take the occupants 'word for it'?
The discount of 25% on the Council charge in this Borough would amount to 0000's of pounds, they can't all be genuine.
