Council Tax Support Scheme 23/24

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 receive continuing support and 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 is a key priority for this administration. This constitutes a £9m investment by the Council to support the borough's lowest income families for 2023/24.
