Council Tax Consultation - Have your say

Babergh and Mid Suffolk Councils have launched a consultation on changes to their Council Tax Reduction Scheme (CTRS).

The consultation runs from Tuesday 31 October to 27 November 2017.

The current Council Tax Reduction Scheme replaced Council Tax Benefit in 2013. Over the last 4 years there have been a number of changes to Housing Benefit legislation, resulting in some residents seeing their circumstances being treated differently in application for support with Council Tax compared to Housing Benefit. The upcoming introduction of Universal Credit will also significantly change how residents receive financial support.

In light of this proposals have been made to change the Babergh and Mid Suffolk Council Tax Reduction Schemes to reduce the burden of administration of the separate schemes, treat customers circumstances the same for Housing Benefit and CTR, support customers in receipt of Universal Credit and continue to support those customers most in need.

Following the consultation a report will be produced and submitted to the Full Councils, proposing the final changes come into effect on 1 April 2018.
