What is Council Tax Reduction?

You could be eligible for Council Tax Reduction (CTR) if you’re on a low income or claim benefits.

The CTR scheme aims to protect the most vulnerable in the community and ensures that the following people will continue to receive the same level of support they previously received:

  • pensioners
  • people with disabilities who are in receipt of Disability Living Allowance or Personal Independence Payment
  • those receiving a War Disablement Pension, War Widow’s or War Widower’s Pension
CTR is worked out based on:
  • your age
  • your circumstances (eg number of children, residency status, other adults living with you)
  • the money you have coming in - this includes benefits, savings, pensions and all household income
  • the amount of council tax you have to pay

Exceptional hardship scheme

We appreciate that this change may not be easy to cope with. If you experience exceptional circumstances of financial hardship, then you may be able to claim some short term discretionary assistance with your council tax. This is not a cash payment, but an account balancing payment to help manage a debt.
