Dear Dominic Grieve - Has Basildon council been illegally charging Dale Farm residents council tax, illegally collecting it.
Council tax ( in law defined as a tax on a RESIDENTIAL property so presumably has to be recognised as such officially) can't be collected if breach planning conditions and on dwellings where occupation is forbidden in law. Seems to me that the council has been illegally charging Dale Farm residents council tax, illegally collecting it.
Now if you were claiming to be exempt and you weren't, the council can do you under the theft act - so what about when the council have been collecting it unlawfully, can we do them under the theft act? And can someone in touch with the lawyers find out if the fact that council tax has been paid alters the legal status of the homes - i.e. the fact they have been officially recognised for council tax purposes as residential properties affords them the right to planning permission and retrospective planning permission now?Cheers Lou Morgan
