Give your views on Council Tax Reduction Scheme

Tue, 18 Sep 2018 10:59 by Sally Willis

People in Northampton are being asked to have their say on how proposed changes to the Council Tax Reduction scheme may affect them.

The scheme, operated by Northampton Borough Council, provides financial support for people on low incomes, to help them pay their council tax bill. Any changes to the scheme will directly affect all working-age households that currently receive a reduction. More »

To make sure that the scheme remains affordable for everyone, a number of options are being considered:

• No change. The maximum amount of CTRS will remain at 65%
• Increase the maximum amount of CTRS from 65% to 70%
• Decrease the maximum amount of CTRS from 65% to 60%

Over the next eight weeks, people can give their views on the scheme and the proposed changes, which will be implemented on 1 April, 2019.

Councillor Brandon Eldred, Cabinet member for finance, said: "The CTR scheme is funded with a limited amount of money, which is made available from the Government. There is less funding available this year, which means we have to review the scheme to make sure that it continues to provide financial support for as many people as possible.

"I would encourage anyone who is likely to be affected by the proposed changes to take part in the consultation."

There will be five drop-in sessions at the Guildhall as part of the consultation:

Thursday, 20 September 2018 1pm - 4pm
Thursday, 4 October 2018 9am - 12pm
Tuesday, 16 October 2018 9am - 12pm
Thursday, 25 October 2018 12:30pm - 3:30pm
Tuesday, 6 November 2018 4:30pm - 6:30pm

The consultation runs from Monday, 17 September until Sunday, 11 November and can be accessed at: https://www.northampton.gov.uk/ctr-year7-consultation

If you have any queries regarding the consultation, or need any help to access information about these proposed changes, please contact CTRScheme@northampton.gov.uk or telephone 0300 330 7000. » Less
