Council Tax Support Consultation

The Council has a local Council Tax Support scheme (also known as Council Tax Reduction) that reduces the amount of Council Tax that eligible households have to pay. It is important that the Council reviews its scheme regularly to ensure that it is as simple as possible for residents to access and that the overall cost of the scheme can be contained within budget.

The Council is consulting on four changes that would take effect from 1 April 2020 and is encouraging Council Taxpayers and local partners, groups and organisations to submit a response. The consultation document can be found on the following link:

A full copy of the draft scheme is also available on our Council Tax Support Scheme page

Following the consultation, Councillors will make a decision on what changes, if any, should be implemented. The consultation closes at mid-day on Wednesday 13th November 2019.
