Council Tax Support Fund

The Government has recently announced additional help for people in receipt of Council Tax Support.

Payments will be made for twenty five pounds or, if it is less, the balance of Council Tax owed in respect of the financial year 2023 to 2024.

More information will appear here when it becomes available.

Council Tax Support Scheme 1 April 2022 to 31 March 2023

For the financial year 2022/2023, anyone under the eligible pension age who is liable to pay Council Tax will have to pay at least 24 per cent of their Council Tax bill.

Pensioners will continue to receive support up to 100 per cent of their Council Tax bill

If you’re struggling to pay your Council Tax, you could qualify for help to reduce your Council Tax bill with the Discretionary Council Tax Hardship Scheme.
