I WAS very interested in reading about the "hidden Cambourne taxes" (November 1). I live on the Eynesbury Manor site in Barford Road, Eynesbury. I was told that I was to pay a management fee when I moved on to the estate but I was not told that I had to pay two management fees.
There is a Eynesbury Manor Management Company Limited and an Eynesbury Manor (2) MCL.
When I asked what the second one was for, I am apparently paying for the Marina (which I do not live near) and the Pocket Park (which belongs to the council). The lists of maintenance charges are identical on each bill. The cost of one of the bills is around £160 per year and the other is around £150 a year.
You can never get any answers from the company if you ring them and we never have any meetings.
I think half of the estate pay no fees, while a quarter pay one fee and the other quarter pay two. Surely this cannot be possible.

THE additional charge they are paying in Cambourne has nothing to do with where a particular person's property is. It has more to do with age of the property.
The majority of building contractors use IPG (Independent Gas Transporters) instead of Transco to install gas supply to their developments because it is cheaper for them, although the overall costs are higher. Administration costs that arise for different trading practices of the IPGs mean suppliers are faced with higher costs to serve these properties - which are unfortunately passed onto customers.
IPG charges are applied across the UK, and not just by Powergen. The majority of suppliers charge this either as an additional standing charge or hidden with special IPG tariffs.
