Basically a total mess with large annual bills hitting residents just before Christmas. Many residents dispute work and charges.
And this is interesting:
“Double charging because residents pay the full East Devon District Council council tax
EDDC has consistently taken the line that it will not take on responsibility for anything other than its statutory responsibilities and this is not unique to Cranbrook but affecting all other new major developments.
On the face of it this is unfair – Cranbrook residents contribute to all public open space owned by EDDC but the reverse is not the case.
This is why the Town Council is seeking to take on these responsibilities to provide best value for residents of the Town.
It is for EDDC to respond to this point.”
