Council Tax Support Scheme 2022-23

Report of the Group Director of Operations


The Group Director of Operations submitted a report (previously circulated) which requested that the Council Tax Support (CTS) Scheme be approved.


The submitted report stated that Councils are required to set a CTS scheme each year, and as part of that exercise they must consider whether any changes should be made to any existing scheme, and, where changes are made, consider what transitional protection, if any, should apply to anyone affected by those changes. The submitted report outlined the details of the proposed CTS scheme for 2022/23.


RESOLVED - That the CTS scheme for 2022-23, as appended to the submitted report, be approved, and in doing so:-


(i)                  Continue providing up to 100% CTS for care leavers under the age of 25, and


(ii)                Continue providing up to 80% CTS for all other working age people.


REASONS - (a) The Council is required to publish a local CTS scheme for 2022-23 by 11 March 2022.


(b) The continued application of a reduced entitlement for working aged people is still appropriate, given the current financial position of the Council.
