Parish Council mailings for meeting on 10th October 2012


Planning meeting, Tuesday 30 October -

Information from HBC

As part of Welfare Reform the Government has announced that Council Tax Benefit is to be abolished and replaced from April 2013 by a new local financial support scheme, called Council Tax Reduction.  How this scheme is operated will be decided by local authorities.  The Government has also announced that the amount it pays local authorities for their new local schemes will be 10 per cent less than it currently pays them for Council Tax Benefit.

The council has drawn up a proposed scheme for 2013/2014 that will maintain the current levels of financial support offered to claimants, although Second Adult Rebate will end for new applicants after 31 March 2013.  It is also proposing changes to specific Council Tax exemptions and discounts currently granted in respect of second homes and empty properties, as permitted by the Local Government Finance Bill.
We are committed to ensuring that all interested parties have the opportunity to have their say.  The consultation will end on Sunday 4 November 2012. The council has to adopt its scheme by the deadline prescribed by the Government of 31 January 2013.
Please will you complete our online questionnaire in the interest of the people/service you represent. It takes around ten minutes and is also available on paper or in any format that best suits you.  Please contact Gary Layzell with any questions (01423) 556405.
