Local Council Tax Reduction Scheme 2022
A 6 week consultation on the Local Council Tax Reduction Scheme finished on Sunday 5 December 2021.
In October 2021 Fenland District Council proposed a change to its Council Tax Support scheme that would take effect from 1 April 2022. If implemented, these changes would affect:
- the threshold for how much capital a customer can own (for example, savings) and still be entitled to a Council Tax reduction
- the impact that living with non-dependent friends or family members has on the Council Tax reduction that a customer receives
- the relationship between the application processes for Universal Credit and for Local Council Tax Reduction
- the way in which fluctuations in a customer's earning's are taken into account in LCTRS
The consultation finished on Sunday 5 December 2021 and feedback will now be considered before a final proposal is presented to councillors in early 2022.
