Our Customer Services team has received a number of calls this morning from customers concerned about correspondence received from their bank regarding their Direct Debit payments to the Councils.
At a historic meeting this evening, councillors from Suffolk Coastal and Waveney District Councils set the first ever budget for the new East Suffolk Council, which will replace the two existing authorities on April 1st.
Please be aware that some Waveney residents have received scam calls claiming to be from Waveney District Council. The caller - sometimes an individual claiming to work for the Council and sometimes someone claiming to be from a company calling on our behalf - tells the customer of a credit on their Council Tax account and requests the customer's bank details in order to issue a refund.
Suffolk Coastal has pegged its increase in Council Tax to less than a fiver for the second year running.
