Press Release

13 October 2016

Tell us what you think of our Council Tax Support Scheme

Fareham Borough Council would like to hear what residents think of the current Council Tax Support Scheme and some small proposed changes in a consultation running until Tuesday 22 November 2016.

Council Tax Support helps people on a low income to pay their Council Tax. If someone is entitled to it, then it is paid as a reduction in their Council Tax bill.

The Council is proposing a new Council Tax Support Scheme from 1 April 2017 which is the same as the current scheme but with a few minor changes that reflect the amendments the Government have made to other welfare benefits:

Executive Leader of Fareham Borough Council, Cllr Seán Woodward said: "Before we introduce some slight changes to the Council Tax Support Scheme we would like to know what residents think. This will help us ensure that we continue to protect the most vulnerable claimants."

Complete the survey at www.fareham.gov.uk/consultations by Tuesday 22 November 2016.  You can also get a paper copy at the Council's Civic Offices.

 

ENDS
