Rates for residents groups

04 March 2011

Question

Hi Bob,

The Chancellor of the Exchequer announced an increase in the above rates during his budget speech. The new rate is applicable from the 6 April. Is it the intention of WDC to pay the new rate to those residents who are involved in residents groups or not. If not please explain why that will not happen? 

Regards, 
Paul Martin

Answer

Dear Paul 

I was of course aware of the Chancellor's announcement. I would expect that the new rate will be paid for those involved in residents group and to operate from 6 April. I do not believe there is any formal process required but understand it will be discussed at the Liaison Group on the 8 April.

Regards, 
Bob Standley.
