The government has distributed £100 million of new grant funding in 2023-24 for local authorities to support economically vulnerable households in their area with council tax bills.
Council Tax payers who are currently receiving help from the Council Tax Reduction scheme as of 1 April 2023 will be eligible for additional help and this will automatically be awarded on your bills.
- You do not need to make a separate application.
- You can receive up to £30 in additional support depending on the balance of your Council Tax bill.
- If the balance of your Council Tax account for 2023-24 is less than £30 you will receive a lower amount that reduces your Council Tax demand for 2023-24 to nil.
- If your Council Tax bill is already nil you will not be eligible for the additional support.
For any eligible applications for Council Tax Reduction received after 01 April 2023, the Council will automatically grant this further reduction.
