Essex County Council – NEW COUNCIL TAX

On 22 February 2007, Members of Rochford District Council were advised by Shaun Scrutton that Essex County Council were going to charge a swinging new tax on property developers.

Basically it is a levy of £10,000 on each new dwelling as a general charge for highway improvements.  So for the 8 flat application we were discussing this was a huge £80,000 tax.

I saw it as a NEW TAX but another Member felt that it was an incentive for RDC to pass the planning application !!

On the basis of the number of new homes to be forced on Rochford District Green belt, the new tax would raise £46 Million but perhaps it is a blessing in disguise because developers won’t want to pay it !!

    dear sir/madam
    i am writing to complain, i would like to know how people are allowed to look after peoples dogs in a mobile home, you did visit this person regarding this, and she still has not applyed for a liecence to looked after peoples dogs. she also is taking in horse liverlys with no fencing on the outstirks or boarders of her land, and she charges 20.00 per horse and also rents out her big black barn to a person who runs a wedding car service and not paying any business tax or got any kind of lieblity insurance of any kind.and she is on a pension so is she not paying her council either.i think this is very unfair as people work for their money not just sit back and take money for nothing.
