1. Council Tax reduction consultation
What is Council Tax reduction?
People on a low income can apply for Council Tax reduction (sometimes known as Council Tax support) to reduce the amount of Council Tax they have to pay.
What is the reason for this consultation?
Every year the council decides its Council Tax reduction scheme which provides support to working age householders on low incomes with their Council Tax.
This consultation is about allowing the scheme to protect claimant entitlements from the adverse effects of welfare changes made by Central Government in response to Covid-19.
The consultation is running from 2 November to 13 December and it will only take a few minutes to complete.
