SNC Apology after Council Tax billing error

Posted: Thu, 21 Mar 2019 16:30 by Samantha Hosking

South Northamptonshire Council is today apologising to residents for a billing error in their Council Tax.

Residents of South Northamptonshire will be receiving replacement Council Tax bills in the next week or so after the originals were issued with incorrect figures. More »

Last week around 36,000 bills landed on doormats around the district, but due to human error the figures were calculated incorrectly.

Leader of South Northamptonshire Council, Cllr Ian McCord, said: "I should like to personally apologise.

"We now know what went wrong and we have a solution but this does not reflect the high-standards that residents deserve, so I want to say sorry.

"The error is relatively small; the incorrect bills show people owe an average £20 less than they should for a Band D home, or an average of £40 too little for a Band H property.

"I wholeheartedly apologise to residents and want to assure them the replacement bills will be thoroughly checked and no one will pay a penny more or less than they should."

Direct Debit payments due on Monday 1 April as stated in the original bills will not go ahead, and the correct sum will instead be taken on 15 April, and thereafter on the first of each month for those paying in instalments.

The new bills will be printed on light yellow paper, so as to help residents quickly spot the newly reissued, corrected bills, and avoid confusion. » Less

Superfast fibre broadband coming to Syresham Parish

Posted: Fri, 01 Mar 2019 16:40 by Samantha Hosking

SUPERFAST FIBRE BROADBAND

COMING SOON TO HOUSEHOLDS THROUGHOUT

SYRESHAM, CROWFIELD AND PIMLICO

As part of the central government's plans to roll out superfast broadband to UK rural areas, Gigaclear have been awarded the contract to provide superfast fibre broadband networks to rural communities in Northamptonshire. More »

Works in the parish of Syresham are due to start at the end of March. There will be some disruption while the cables are laid in narrow trenches. Some temporary footpath and road closures will be necessary during the works, which could last for approximately 8-12 weeks.

The new network will mean that most residents will have the option to access this new, faster fibre broadband.

Residents should start to receive letters from Gigaclear from 8th March onwards. The letters will give more information.

In the meantime there are some FAQ leaflets available either from Syresham Post Office or from the Parish Clerk. The PDF of the Frequently Asked Questions Leaflet is also on Gigaclear's website, www.gigaclear.net/wp-content/uploads/networkbuildfaqs.pdf

If residents have any additional questions please contact Gigaclear directly:
