£400 Energy Rebate Update

There is much concern and stories are circulating that park home residents will not get this payment. This has been brought about because the Chancellor said that every household would get the £400 grant. However he failed to say that park home owners would not get it because they did not have an individual electricity account.

Feelings are of course understandably high - and so they should be  - but please be patient and wait for the Government's announcement because they are fully aware.  

Sir Peter Bottomley MP, the Father of the House and President of the Park Home Owners JUSTICE Campaign is strenuously behind you and has been in contact with the Secretary of State; as have many MPs.  I know I will hear from him direct with any reply and that will be passed to you immediately. 

However, It does no harm for you to keep the pressure on and lobby your MP to add his/her voice.  

In addition, on BBC Morning Live today. They were discussing the energy support measures and said a spokesman from the Government said they are aware of the issue for park home owners and are looking at other ways of getting the payment to us. 

A further report is expected in late summer.

This payment is not due until October, so we have plenty of time.  I am sure a solution will be found - but if not, I hope you will agree, then is the time to raise our voices and do something very constructive to force change - and the Park Home Owners JUSTICE Campaign will be fully behind it.

This whole situation is a national disgrace.  Park Home Owners have the same rights as home-owners in bricks and mortar.  But as usual, it was not thought through and no one could blame any park home resident for feeling  they are treated like second class citizens.  But your day will come.  There is strength in numbers and as mentioned above, may I ask you to bombard your MP with letters requesting them to bring this up in the house.  Perhaps also remind them that in the not too distant future they will want your vote. Along with the support that we already have, we can leave no stone unturned.  This affects us all and we will get JUSTICE - on this front and in changing RPI to CPI on our pitch fee increase.  So please continue to do your bit.
