Council Tax Reduction Scheme

Each year the council must decide whether to change the Council Tax Reduction scheme for working age applicants in its area. 

This year the Council has decided to significantly change the working age Council Tax Reduction Scheme and carried out a consultation with residents which closed on 28th November 2022.


If you are on a low income, you may be entitled to claim help with your housing costs and get a reduction on your council tax. Housing benefit and council tax reduction are administered by the council, and Universal Credit by the Department for Works and Pensions (DWP). Find out more below.
