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 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 wanted you to tell us what you think about these proposed changes.

The questionnaire closing date was 4 September 2016 and the responses are now being analysed. Your views will be taken into account when it is decided whether these changes should be made.
