Localised Council Tax Support

22/08/2012 - Localised Council Tax Support

The Executive Meeting considered a report on the impact of the abolition of the national Council Tax Benefit Scheme and its replacement with a localised Council Tax Support arrangement, including changes to the funding for the scheme would be at least 10% lower than the amount currently provided.


The Executive Meeting then agreed that Corporate Director for Corporate and Support Services, in conjunction with the relevant executive councillors, prepare detailed proposals for a local Council Tax Support Scheme based on a menu of measures (Option 3 as set out in section 3 of the report) to be considered at the extraordinary meeting of the Executive on 7 September 2012.
