18-12-2023 Changes to the Council Tax Support Scheme

Do you currently receive Council Tax Support (which used to be called Council Tax Reduction Scheme / Council Tax Benefit Scheme)?

Are you currently paying either no council tax, or reduced council tax because you are on certain benefits or on low income, and hence, currently eligible for council tax support?

If the answer to both the above questions is yes, then it's important for you to read this information, and fill in the consultation, as the proposed changes to the council tax support scheme could affect you.

Additionally, as everyone's circumstances are unique, if you are a Council Tax Support claimant, and want to know how the proposals could potentially have an impact on your household, the council are offering one-to-one sessions. To book a one-to-one session (for this Council Tax Support consultation only), please email them at ctsconsultation@enfield.gov.uk.

Please read the attached document here which gives a brief overview of what Council Tax Support is, as well as the main principles of the proposals.

You can have your say about the proposals with this questionnaire

There is also easy-ready information available here.

This consultation will close on 21st January.
