Council Tax

Council Tax going up again , but yet service is not getting any better , i think someone`s need to look at what we are paying Council Tax for , and start putting those services into place , and not when you fill like it , o yes think people know there is a lot of management rolls gone in Council, as your contractors get away with the very poor service , which gives you a bad name.

Survey on Council Tax

What survey? I read the Telford and Wrekin email every week and I have not seen anything inviting me to complete a survey.

Council tax

Where on earth does the council think people are getting this money from. People are already struggling as it is to pay there Bill's and to feed themselves.If TWC want to get more money stop paying local councillors expenses. No one asked them to be councillors if they don't want to pay for there own stuff that they need to perform council duties then it's really simple, give up being a councillor. Why should the council tax payer have to pay for there cer fuel and all other stuff that they claim for. Only today I saw 3 Wellington civic offices staff walk out of the building with a large tub of what I can only presume were alcoholic wet wipes which were probably payed for out of public council tax payer's money, taking them home for there own personal home use. One way of getting extra money for public amenities is to lower the amount of salary that council leader's get for doing what, like cutting public services just to pay themselves more money. Anyway rant over. One more thing stop your council staff who are not disabled from parking there vehicles in public disabled bays. Where most day's there parked there all day.


Why do we need to spend £275,000 to market Telford? The place is already too busy, overcrowded and lacks parking and homes. The green spaces are disappearing at an amazing rate and the local villages are being turned into the early stages of a conurbation of inner city slums. This is all about our representatives wanting more power and more money to spend. Having more money to spend is counter productive if the Council has to care for an even larger population.

Whats important to me.

Having read a number of comments ,all of which referred to the increase in council tax, it was interesting to note your reference to an improvement in the well being of residents, I,ve waited 30 years for that : and I,m still waiting.

Council tax increase

As a pensioner on a minimum pension this is more than my pension increase so I shall find this rather unjustified in the present circumstances, As living on my own is already a burden on my resources, When I moved into my home in 1960 Mr Mathews the town clerk as was said my rates would be £25 per year and was for the first two years [What happened] it is now almost six times that now ,The system is totally unfair and should be based on what one can afford, I doubt my comments will make one blind bit of notice but that is my opinion Thank you.
