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).

In Summer 2016 we asked for your views on the scheme and proposed changes to it.  

The results were analysed and your views were taken into account when we decided whether these changes should be made. The proposals were discussed and approved at Full Council on Wednesday 21 December 2016.

The new Council Tax Support Scheme is now in place and we are due to review it again this year.
