Council Tax Support - Consultation for 2018/19                                                                          

We need your views on our proposed Council Tax Support Scheme for 2018/19

Since 1st  April 2013 our scheme has been based broadly on the following principles: -

- It protects those of pension age and working age customers in receipt of war pensions.

- It is means tested and allows for vulnerability within the calculation methodology.

- The current scheme also limits the maximum help we give to working age people through Council Tax Support to 75%, this therefore means all working age people have to pay at least 25% towards their Council Tax.

We currently pay Council Tax Support to around 2,700 working age households every year.

For the year 2018/19 we are not proposing to make any changes and will look to continue our 2017/18 scheme for a further year.
