Official text of the Council Tax Support scheme

By law, we have to publish the full scheme each year. The documents below are the legal text defining the scheme. You do not need to read these to make a claim.

New scheme rules come into force on 1 April each year, and are valid until 31 March of the following year.

We are currently consulting on the proposed options for the scheme in 2022/2023. Council Tax Support update for 2022/23 consultation.
