Lower Council tax and help for those most in need

T4R have been active in scrutinising the proposed budget and rise in Council Tax put forward by the coalition Cabinet.

At the Scrutiny meeting on 26th January, T4R put forward 46 separate questions. Based on the information provided by Officers of the Council and members of the Cabinet, we have decided to put forward to amendments to the Budget at the Special Council Meeting to be held on 27th February.

We seek to improve the support for those in need who are on the edge of the Local Council Tax Support which provides a 75% discount for Council Tax. Our proposals can be found at Support for those under pressure from the Cost of Living Crisis.

We also seek Council to consider the alternative of a lower increase in Council tax. Our proposals can be found at Council Tax Increase February 2023.
