Council tax support scheme consultation
Our consultation on proposed changes to our council tax support scheme has now closed.
About the council tax support scheme consultation
We are proposing to make some changes to our Council tax support scheme for 2017/18 and have been consulting with residents and local organisations.
Our consultation finished on Sunday 11 December.
Why we have been consulting on council tax support scheme changes
Council tax support helps people on a low income pay their council tax bill by reducing the amount they have to pay.
We are considering making some changes to our council tax support scheme from April 2017.
These proposed changes are not designed to be money-saving measures but would keep our council tax support scheme in line with the government's housing benefit and Universal Credit schemes, making it easier and more cost-effective to administer and for users to understand.
The changes, if agreed, would only affect people of working age, who receive council tax support.
We will use the answers you provide to help inform the final decisions we make on the council tax support scheme.
We will update this page once we decide on the 2017/18 scheme.
