    Sorry for the wrong time, I was shouted at from Nigel in the workshop that it was starting at 1p.m. but as you can hear it is being discussed at the moment.

    Thankfully, the programme was mainly concerned with those using HOLIDAY static caravans as PERMANENT residences.
    The local counciller was concerned that council tax was not being payed. What he conveniently forgot to include was that even HOLIDAY static owners pay a few grand a year in pitch fees, a not unsubstantial part of which goes straight to the council in the form of rates!

    Correct and what about the revenue from the campers pockets into the local shops, pubs, clubs an bars etc.:Doh:

    We tend to keep away from Wales now, why, because our travel pass isn't valid there. :shout:

    Just a comment from the point of view of accuracy.

    Part of the pitch fee will go toward the business rates(not council tax) which the site owner is charged. The amount of business rates payable is determined by central government, not local authorities.

    Local authorities collect the business rates but pass them on in their entirety to central government where they are used as one source of income for the rate support grant which is paid to local authorities by central government.

    The amount of business rates collected in any given local authority area bears no relationship to the amount which the local authority receives from central government.

    Simple ain't it :Smile:

    Just one of the effects of Labour trying to buy Scottish and Welsh votes by introducing devolution.

    IMO Jeremy Vine is highly opionated and biased, I thought the BBC is supposed to be unbiased but you should here him go on about stuff and take sides :swear:

    Hmmmmmm, generally speaking, I'd have to agree with you, but to be fair, I thought he showed a pretty fair attitude towards the subject today(much as it pains me to say it!:ROFLMAO:)
