FENLANDER: Help for Fenland landlords, libraries meeting, Jobcentre bus visit off

The latest news in brief from Fenland District Council.

Help on hand for landlords

ALL existing and prospective residential landlords are being invited to a “drop-in” evening in the Council Chamber at Fenland Hall, March, on September 30, where they will be able to get expert advice on a wide range of issues that affect them. They can call in at any time between 5pm and 7pm.

Topics that will be covered include housing benefits, grants, anti-social behaviour, fire safety, energy efficiency and dealing with debt. Representatives from the Citizens Advice Bureau, the Fire Service and Christians Against Poverty will be among the advisors attending.

The evening has been organised by Fenland District Council. For more details call its Housing Options team on 01354 654321 or e-mail housingadvice@fenland.gov.uk

Have your say on libraries’ future

A PUBLIC meeting is being held in March Library tonight from 6.30-8.30pm to give Fenland residents the chance to suggest the best ways forward for the district’s libraries in the face of the big cuts to the service that Cambridgeshire County Council says are essential. A questionnaire is also available in all libraries and online at www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/library

Jobs bus visit off

The planned visit of the Jobcentre Plus mobile office to March next Friday has been cancelled. It will return to the town on October 1 and 15.

The bus has been making regular visits to March, Whittlesey and Chatteris over the past three months to reach out to communities that don’t have easy access to a Jobcentre Plus office.

It is scheduled to revisit Whittlesey on September 16 and October 14 and 28, and Chatteris on September 23 and October 7 and 21.
