Warning after reports of possible rogue trader falsely claiming of partnership with council in jaywick sands

Jaywick Sands residents are being advised of reports of a door to door trader falsely claiming to represent a company working with Tendring District Council (TDC).

TDC has been made aware that an individual has been offering people cash incentives to allow them to carry out a survey on their home. In addition they have reportedly told people the company they are trying to get leads for is partnered with TDC.

TDC does support a similar scheme in Jaywick Sands, run by Warmer Homes under the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) initiative, for people to make improvements to their homes to make them more energy efficient.

Paul Honeywood, TDC Cabinet Member with special responsibility for Jaywick Sands, urged residents to be clear about what they were signing up for.

“The company being touted by this individual appears to be a genuine firm and people can choose to go with them if they wish, though it would seem this person trying to drum up sales is a freelance building up their own leads,” Cllr Honeywood said. “However, we want to be clear that we are not working with them on any initiatives – and instead work with Warmer Homes.”

For more information about Warmer Homes Jaywick Sands scheme people can call 01255 879448, or the TDC leader officer for the initiative on 01255 686785.
