This would mean someone in a band A property who has their entire council tax bill paid for them currently would have to pay £264 a year should it rise by 35 per cent from April.

 

It will affect those claiming the benefit because they are on either income-based jobseekers’ allowance, income support, income-based employment allowance or disability allowances.

This could rise to 44 per cent if the public decides those on disability allowances should be protected from the cuts.

Call for TORY city council leader to face investigation...... | PCC News | Scoop.it

A Fletton pressure group which submitted a dossier of complaints about a controversial flats development has called on Peterborough City Council leader Councillor Marco Cereste to be investigated.

 

Fair Play For Fletton was set up in 2006 to oppose Heritage Homes Development’s plans to build 14 flats on the site of 157 to 161 Fletton Avenue, Fletton.

 

A protracted battle for planning permission was finally won by the developers in September 2010, when they received planning permission from Peterborough City Council at the fifth time of asking.
