There is a requirement to annually review the Local Council Tax Support (LCTS) Scheme, and propose changes to the scheme for the following financial year.

RESOLVED to approve the following proposals to inform the Local Council Tax Support Scheme for 2020/21:

 

i)              The 2020/21 LCTS scheme is set on the same basis as the 2019/20 scheme and therefore the contribution rate is frozen for the fifth consecutive year.

ii)             The Council continues to protect Vulnerable and Disabled Residents and Carer’s on a low income.
