The Director of Organisational Development and Corporate Services submitted a report which made recommendations for the operation of the Council’s Council Tax Reduction Scheme in 2017/18
Cllr Brown, Board member for Customer and Corporate Services presented the report. She said it was best to retain the current scheme as evidence suggested that councils that had set a minimum charge had often seen a drop in council tax collection rates.
Cllr Simmons said that the Finance Panel had reviewed the scheme and agreed with the recommendations.
