To consider whether the Council, should amend its Council Tax Reduction Scheme for 2017/18.


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.

1.    Approve the existing Council Tax Reduction scheme for the financial year 2017/18.
