Re­value homes to raise funds

Macclesfield Express - - YOUR VIEWS -

CHESHIRE East Coun­cil is al­ways talk­ing about the cuts it is hav­ing to make to so­cial care and ed­u­ca­tion.

In­stead of com­plain­ing, why don’t they sig­nif­i­cantly boost their coun­cil tax rev­enues by revalu­ing all house val­ues in the bor­ough so that they match cur­rent mar­ket val­ues?

Prop­erty val­ues for coun­cil tax pur­poses have not changed since 1991! Nigel Robin­son Bolling­ton


AN open let­ter to David Rut­ley MP:

As MP for Mac­cles­field, your con­stituents voted to re­main in the EU. You should re­spect that de­ci­sion and act ac­cord­ingly on that de­ci­sion.

You might per­son­ally have your own view, but this should not in­flu­ence how you vote on your con­stituents’ be­half.

When the amend­ments from the Lords are pre­sented to the Com­mons next week I hope your con­science and your con­stituents’ views are se­ri­ously con­sid­ered be­fore you choose how to cast your vote.

I hope that you will NOT be one of the many to just do as you are told. Gil­lian Moors Mel­rose Cres­cent Poyn­ton
