Council Tax Support Scheme 22/23

Since 2013, every council has been required to set its own Council Tax Support Scheme, setting out how it wants to help those on low income pay their council tax. The administration is determined to ensure that residents are no worse off than they would have been had the original council tax benefit regulations stayed in place, ensuring that lower income families are supported by the council. This report is not proposing to make any changes to the Council Tax Support Scheme for 2022/23 other than the application of the annual uprating.
