HERE COMES THE MONEY!
At last we have confirmation that the council are going to start paying the money this week.
But it’s only a start and they’ve only just squeaked in some payments in June - on the very last day, at that. 28th June
So the first payments for the first 1200 or so people will hit bank accounts on Friday. The payments are by BACS transfers on Wednesday but they won’t reach your bank until FRIDAY
Some small and unusual banks like M&S bank , or building societies, take a day longer to process than other banks. No I don’t know why either. So they might not arrive until Monday.
The council will then start a rolling programme of daily payments matched to the 28 day deadline starting on Monday 1st July. They expect to have paid out roughly 2/3rds of the money by 5th July. Or the day before PAYFEST. So come and spend it with us.
Karl Bromley will post known or confirmed payment dates this morning.
ANOTHER PLEA - IF ITS NOT ON YOUR TRACKER WE DON’T KNOW YOUR PAYMENT DATE.DON’T RING OR MESSAGE ASKING YOUR PAYMENT DATE. IF ITS NOT ON TRACKER WE DON’T KNOW.
let’s be happy the money is finally being paid.
Goodness me, what a hard slog this month has been. I can’t quite believe it myself but payment day is finally going to happen.
