The Local Council Tax Reduction Scheme (sometimes known as Council Tax support) helps people and households on low income pay their Council Tax bill.
West Northamptonshire Council has recently reviewed the scheme and is proposing two changes for the 2022 to 2023 financial year. More »
The first proposal would change the rules for working-age people who receive a war widows or war disablement pension. They are currently eligible for a Council Tax discount of up to 80%, but this would be increased to 100% under the new proposal.
The second proposal would make it easier for young people who are leaving care to seek financial support.
Currently, West Northamptonshire residents aged 18 to 25 who were formerly children in the care of the Council can apply for a number of different awards and discounts to reduce their Council Tax bill.
It is now proposed to include this support as part of the Local Council Tax Reduction Scheme, meaning they would be eligible for a discount of up to 100% on their Council Tax bill while only having to complete a single application process.
The proposed changes will impact those of working age. Those of pensioner age are protected by the prescribed regulations set out by central government.
WNC are seeking views on our proposals for the Local Council Tax Reduction Scheme for 2022 to 2023.
Feedback from the consultation will be considered by West Northamptonshire Council's Cabinet when making their final decision on the proposals on 9 November.
This consultation closes at midnight on Sunday 17 October 2021.
