Each year we have to review how much reduction in Council Tax is given to people of working age on low income and publish this in a Council Tax Reduction Scheme (also known as Council Tax Support).

The changes being drafted do not affect pensioners and will:

  • bring the Scheme in line with the Government’s latest welfare reforms to Housing Benefit and Universal Credit
  • deliver some savings and
  • reduce our administration costs.

We want you to tell us what you think about these proposed changes.

Your views will be taken into account when it is decided whether these changes should be made.

The questionnaire ended on 4th September 2016.
