Council tax reduction scheme

This consultation ends on Thursday 27 November, 2022.

We want your views on potential changes to our council tax reduction scheme.

The proposed changes aim to:

  • provide targeted support to those households on the lowest incomes
  • make the scheme easier for residents to understand and access;
  • provide greater stability to those who are in receipt of support;
  • make the scheme work better with the Universal Credit award system;
  • build in capacity to better manage increase in demand; and
  • reduce administration costs which will ultimately prevent any additional costs being added to the council tax.

All responses will be be used to provide an updated report to the policy and resources committee, before a final decision on the changes is made by full council.
