Since 1 April 2013 the Council has been operating a local Council Tax Support Scheme (CTS), which replaced Council Tax Benefit.
Each year the Council has to review and make a scheme for the year ahead. As part of this process we consult with customers and stakeholders to help us develop and update our Scheme. This year’s consultation is now open and will close on 26 December 2018
What to do next...
If you have any questions about the consultation please contact us on 0808 178 7142
South Norfolk Council is committed to the key principle of the Government's Welfare Reform agenda, which is to make sure that people are better off in work than out of work. We remain committed to the principle of aligning our Scheme with the majority of the rules within Housing Benefit. With the implementation of Universal Credit that has now been rolled out throughout South Norfolk amendments to Housing Benefit are limited. We have therefore chosen to not make any changes to our Council Tax Support Scheme for financial year 2019/20.
Traditionally we are able to detail each change however as we are not proposing any changes this year we are not able to do this. We do however value resident’s opinions regarding your Council Tax Support Scheme. Please click on the survey link below to take the opportunity to have your say.
