From April 2013 the national system of Council Tax Benefit stopped and every council had to design and manage their own local scheme for Council Tax Support (CTS). At the same time the Government reduced the funding to local councils.
Before any changes are made to our CTS scheme, it is important that we seek and understand the views of those people that might be affected – our community. We are therefore consulting with residents to obtain feedback on a number of possible scheme changes. Please note, not all of the changes suggested in this consultation will necessarily be introduced.
