Consultation on Council Tax reduction

As part of the Welfare Reform Act, Council Tax Benefit is being replaced by the Council Tax Reduction Scheme.

Under the new scheme, there will be a maximum amount that a claimant will be entitled to, which will result in everyone having to pay part of their council tax bill.

In Denbighshire, 10,800 council taxpayers currently receive financial help with the council tax at a cost of £8.98 million.

The Welsh Assembly Government has decided to introduce a scheme to be adopted by all Wales Local Authorities with discretion to enhance payment in the additional areas of:

· Backdating
Extended payments
· War pensions

This consultation is to ask for opinions as to whether the Authority should adopt these enhancements as part of our Council Tax Reduction Scheme.

Responses should be in writing to:
· By email –
· By post – Consultation, Benefits Department, Russell House, Churton Rd, Rhyl, Denbighshire, LL18 3DP.

Closing date for responses 4th January 2013.
