Council Tax Support Scheme 2017/18 Consultation

  • Council Tax Support Scheme 2017/18 Consultation

The Council Tax Support Scheme provides financial support to residents on low incomes to help them pay their Council Tax.

The council has a difficult financial situation to manage over the coming years and will have to make savings and increase income. Part of these savings could come from the Council Tax Support Scheme.

Between 27 July and 16 September 2016 we consulted on options for changes to the scheme.

The consultation has now closed and the recommendations from the consultation were considered and approved by full Council on 1 December 2016. 

See the changes to the Council Tax Support Scheme from 1 April 2017.

We completed an Equality Impact Assessment on this consultation.
