What’s This About?
The Local Council Tax Support Scheme (also known as Council Tax Reduction) helps people on low income to pay their Council Tax. By law, Councils are required to have a scheme to help people on low incomes to pay their council tax. Each year Councils needs to approve a Local Council Tax Support Scheme for the following 12 months. Where there are changes proposed, the Council has to consult with the public.
The new West Northamptonshire Council – which will take over the responsibilities for Woodford of Daventry District Council and Northamptonshire County Council from 1st April 2021 – is consulting on the scheme that they propose to put in place.
