Richmondshire District Council

Council Tax Reduction Scheme consultation responses

During October and November 2020, the council consulted on the following five areas of the Council Tax Reduction Scheme to recommend changes from 1 April 2021:

  • Self-employed customers
  • Capital limits
  • Backdated claims
  • Not applying changes to small variations in discount levels (minimal level)
  • Matching income assumptions on housing benefits to Universal Credit calculations

A total of 114 responses have been received in response to the consultation. All responses will help to inform the final decision on the 2021-22 scheme. The results will be reported to the council's Corporate Board on 12 January 2021.
