Council portal puts residents in control

Council portal puts residents in control

Posted: Tue, 17 Sep 2019 18:25 by Mark Hazelton

Residents now have the option to receive bills and pay their council tax online following the launch of a Citizens' Portal by South Northamptonshire Council (SNC).

Up till now Council Tax payers were required to print, sign and return direct debit mandates by email or post. They will now be able to complete tasks online at their own convenience.

The Citizens' Portal will also service small businesses and landlords and contains a host of other services, including: direct debit amendments, change of address, and those in receipt of Housing Benefits or Council Tax Reduction will be able to view their details and check payments have been made.

Cllr Andrew Grant, SNC's portfolio holder for customer service and IT, said: "South Northants has one of the highest Council Tax collection rates in the country, so there hasn't been a strong need to update the way we do things.

"But the world has moved on and residents rightly expect to be able to go online, at any time of the day, and complete transactions in a way that fits into their busy lives.

"There are those who prefer not to go online, so we'll keep those traditional methods of payment open to them.

"But the more people who use the portal means less paper work and fewer hours processing payments. That saves money which can be better spent on other council services.

"To utilise the portal, follow the link below and complete the account creation process which includes an email verification.

Anyone wanting to use the portal will need the Council Tax/Benefit Claim/Creditor reference number to access their details which can be found on the top right hand side of any recent letter they have received from the council.

Roaring success of crisp packet collection point

Roaring success of crisp packet collection point

Posted: Wed, 04 Sep 2019 17:13 by Dick Stephen

Nearly 6,000 crisp packets were sent for recycling in the first month of a new collection point at the South Northamptonshire Council (SNC) offices in Towcester.

In May, SNC announced that it had signed up as a collection point for the terracycle initiative which aims to make the 'unrecyclable' recyclable.

Since then district residents have been delivering around 140 empty crisp and nut packets every day. More »

Cllr Bambridge, SNC's portfolio holder for environmental services, said: "Reducing the amount of waste we put in our black bins is about culture change and I'm very pleased to see the number of people willing to go that extra mile to be kind to our planet."

The collection point, just inside the entrance at The Forum, Moat Lane, is run by volunteer SNC staff but anyone can set up a terracycle collection point for themselves, neighbours and work colleagues. For more information visit - https://www.terracycle.com.

The Forum also hosts collections points for batteries and printer cartridges. » Less
