Ratepayers deserve answers

I notice that the rate arrears figures released by Land and Property Services show that the total owed at the end of the last financial year was a record £157m.

On April 25, I wrote to Land and Property Services regarding a query that I had. I did not get a reply and sent a copy of my letter requesting a reply on a further three occasions, but to no avail.

I also wrote to Land and Property Services on May 17 regarding another matter, but - once again - I got no reply.

Perhaps there would be fewer people failing to pay their rates if Land and Property Services would respond to queries from ratepayers.
