Council Tax Reduction Scheme for Low Income Households

applying The Council Tax Reduction scheme ensures that households on the lowest incomes have their bill reduced.  From 1 April 2017,  working age customers will have to pay a minimum contribution of 10% of their council tax charge.

In certain cases, pensioners and working age customers who receive certain state benefits due to their disabilities, are entitled to a 100% reduction and will not have to pay council tax.

For more information about the council tax reduction scheme and other benefits such as Housing Benefit and Universal Credit see or contact our Benefits Team on 01590 646121 or by e-mail at
