Text The Council !!! Gravesham Council.
Apr 16th, 2013 at 4:07am
This Local Authority http://www.gravesham.gov.uk/services/environment-and-planning/street-care-and-cl...

encourage people to text the council to report things that require council action.

They use 07781 480 521 for this service. The only problem is that is a Guernsey Mobile Number . Not normally included in Uk suppliers inclusive allowances.

You would think the council would make it clear that its not actually using a normal UK Mobile Number.

All they say is. "The cost of using a text will depend upon the mobile phone tariff used, but the council will not make any additional charge."

No doubt some people would try and ring it also, only to find out later they may have made an expensive call not normally included in inclusive minutes.

Councils are getting more and more sneaky trying to raise money but this really does take it to a whole new dimension!

What colour is the council?

After years of ignoring govt. guidelines & RIPPING OFF Council Tax payers using 0845 numbers, Essex County Council changed to 0345 numbers on 2 November 2015

The colour of the Gravesham Council currently from 2011 is Labour 25 seats Consevative 19. Conservatives lost 8 seats.

It was Conservative from 2007 - and previous 12 years Labour.

I think a call to Kent Messenger is in order just to let people know. I think I will give the Council a call just to find out what their excuse is.
