Ribble Valley BC
Local Council Tax Support Scheme Consultation 2021
 
We are seeking your views on the Local Council Tax Support (LCTS) Scheme for Ribble Valley Borough Council for 2022-23.

By law, councils are required to have a scheme to help people on low incomes to pay their Council Tax.  Each year councils need to approve a LCTS for the following 12 months.  Where there are changes proposed, it is necessary for a public consultation to take place.  We are now proposing to change our scheme for 2022-23 to make it more generous to claimants of working age by removing the 12% reduction that applies at the end of the assessment.  We are doing this to bring those of working age back into line with pensioners meaning that those on the lowest income will be able to receive up to a 100% LCTS reduction from 2022-23.

Thank you for your time in advance.
