Council Tax Reduction

Localisation of Support for Council Tax

Council Tax Reduction Scheme (CTRS) is to give financial help towards the council tax bills of those on low incomes. 

Each year the council approves our scheme for the year ahead.  People of pension age are no worse off than with the old National Council Tax Benefit scheme (and that also applies where a working age applicant or partner is receiving a disability benefit and therefore is treated as vulnerable).

For working age claimants only, our scheme requires a minimum payment of 10%.  This means therefore that low-income households have to pay 10% of the council tax bill for their home.  Our local scheme aims to encourage work by not counting the first £25 per week of earnings.
