Council tax support and council tax discount schemes consultation

We consulted on proposed changes to our council tax support and council tax discount schemes for 2018/19.

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 have asked for people's views.

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.

About the survey

We ran a survey from Monday 6 November to Sunday 17 December.  This included an online and paper survey.

Our Cabinet will consider the consultation results in early 2018 and recommend proposals for the 2018/19 council tax support scheme to full Council. Any changes will come into effect on 1 April.
