Council tax support and council tax discount schemes consultation

We are consulting on proposed changes to our council tax support and council tax discount schemes for 2018/19 and would like your views.

About our consultation

Council tax support scheme

We provide help to people on a low income who need a hand paying their council tax bill. This help is known as council tax support and we target this support where it is needed most.

Like all councils, we continue to face reductions in our funding, so we must make sure our council tax support scheme is affordable and fair to all council tax payers.

We have therefore been reviewing our council tax support scheme for 2018/19 and would like your views on the options we are considering.

Council tax discounts

At the same time, we are also looking at the discounts we offer on properties that are empty and unfurnished in the short-term, or empty because major work or structural alterations are being carried on them.

Take part in our survey

Before we make any decisions, we'd like to know your views. You can tell us what you think by filling in our survey below.

As everyone pays council tax and any changes may affect other services, your views matter, whether or not you receive council tax support or a discount.
