Flooding possible in East Surrey

The Environment Agency has announced that groundwater flooding is possible in East Surrey following the recent higher than average rainfall.

If you think you are at risk of flooding please start to prepare. Check flood warnings by calling Floodline on 0345 988 1188, which provides recorded flood information and provides advice from an operator 24 hours a day.

If you’re affected by flooding, we’ll help where we can, but we need to prioritise help for our council housing and properties with vulnerable residents.

Council agrees district council tax increase for 2020/2021

Last week’s Council meeting agreed an increase of £5 a year for a Band D property in Tandridge District Council’s share of the council tax for 2020/2021. The meeting also agreed the Council’s budget for next year.

The Council’s share of Band D council tax will increase to £220.98, which is just under £4.25 a week and will help pay for a wide range of vital services like recycling and waste collections, developing town centres, parks and open spaces and supporting our most vulnerable residents.
