Why do we want your views?

This survey is being undertaken as part of the Section 19 Flood Investigation by the London Borough of Merton (Merton). This is to investigate significant flooding events as defined by thresholds set by the Merton LLFA. 

The purpose of this survey is to ask residents and businesses if they have been affected by flooding recently or in the past. This data will then form part of the data analysis for the Section 19 Flood Investigation.

 

Why do we want your views?

Each year the Government makes changes to the legislation that governs the calculation and award of the prescribed Council Tax Reduction (CTR) Scheme for pensioners and Housing Benefit (HB). These changes affect several aspects of these awards and Merton has a commitment to keep the local Council Tax Reduction scheme for non-pensioners, known as Council Tax Support (CTS),  aligned to the Government’s schemes. This ensures there are little or no differences between the prescribed scheme and Housing Benefit and the local CTS scheme and residents will get broadly the same CTS as they would have done if Council Tax Benefit still existed. We are consulting on two options relating to updating the scheme. You can have your say by clicking on the 'Take Part' link below.

Further details regarding the reasons for the options chosen can be found in our consultation paper on our website.
