Local Council Tax Support scheme consultation

Local Council Tax Support (LCTS) is a scheme that helps people in financial need to pay their Council Tax. We carry out an annual review to see whether any changes should be made to the scheme.

Why are we consulting

We get a grant from the Government to pay the Local Council Tax Support, but that grant is reducing each year. If we spend more than the grant, we need your views on how we should fund the shortfall. This could affect the amount of Council Tax that you pay, or it could mean we have to cut services.

It should take about 10 minutes to complete the online questionnaire which runs until 11 October 2015.
