Each year Huntingdonshire District Council must decide whether to change the Council Tax Support scheme for working-age applicants in its area. There are no changes for pension-age applicants as they are part of the national scheme. This year we are deciding whether to change the working-age Council Tax Support Scheme.
We are legally required to consult on any proposed changes to the scheme and we’re asking you to take part in this consultation to find out what you think about our proposed Council Tax Support Scheme, which would start from 1 April 2024.
We want to:
make the scheme easier to understand and access
provide up to 100% support for households on the lowest incomes
make the scheme work better with the Universal Credit system
support families, carers and applicants who receive a disability benefit
take away the need for constant changes in awards and
make the scheme easier to manage.
Please submit your response by 10 September 2023.View the Consultation
