People in Telford and Wrekin are being asked for their views on planned changes to the scheme that offers support to residents of working age on lowest incomes with the costs of council tax.
Since 2013, councils have been responsible for their own Council Tax Support schemes for working-age residents.
Telford & Wrekin Council are proposing to make significant changes to our local scheme from 1 April 2020.
The council are keen to give everyone, whether claiming support or not, the opportunity to have their say on the proposals before any changes are decided.
Consultation starts on 30 September 2019 and ends on 10 November 2019 to meet the Council’s budget setting timetable and to allow sufficient time for responses to be considered and evaluated.
Please give your views by completing the questionnaire, Councillors need these to decide on the final changes to our Council Tax Support scheme for 2020/21. To complete the questionnaire click on this link. https://telford.researchfeedback.net/wh/s.asp?k=156950358441
