Residents are urged to go paperless for council bill

Evesham Editorial 30th Nov, 2023   0

EVESHAM and Pershore residents are being urged to look out for text messages or e-mail alerts inviting them to switch to a paperless Council Tax bill.

More than 19,000 Wychavon households already receive their annual Council Tax demand by e-mail, but tens of thousands of people are still receiving paper copies.

Those who switch to e-billing will get their bill, and any other related communication, faster and will also be helping the environment by reducing their carbon footprint.

Residents who have opted to be contacted by the council by text or e-mail will receive messages asking them to make the switch.

Coun Aaron Powell, deputy council leader said:

“People receive paperless bills for so many services these days that it makes sense to send you your Council Tax bill electronically as well.

“There are many benefits to signing up for e-billing. Not only will you receive your bill faster, but it will put an end to hunting around for the paper copy when you next need to refer to it or produce it for any reason.

“I urge our residents to look out for the text and email messages from us which will start to go out this week and make the switch if they are able to.”
