Sutterton woman who is renovating a derelict manor house in Gedney Broadgate says she is being penalised after being hit with £1,000 a month council bill
A woman who is renovating a derelict historical building says she is being penalised after being hit with a nearly £1,000 a month council bill.
When Pippa Clare bought The Manor House, Gedney Broadgate, in July last year it was infested with pigeons and had a leaking roof but now it is slowly being transformed into a home.
But she is angry after receiving a council bill for £987.99 a month. Previously, she had been paying £197 a month but received an email last week stating that as the property has been empty for more than two years, the council is imposing a long-term empty premium charge.
