Council Tax Support 2017-18

Content

This is a debugging block

The Council’s local Council Tax Support Scheme replaced Council Tax Benefit from April 2013. The Council’s scheme, based on the previous Housing / Council Tax Benefit Scheme, was approved by Full Council in December 2012 after consultation was undertaken with residents of Burnley, Lancashire County Council, Parish Councils, Police, Fire Authority and other interested parties.

The old Council Tax Benefit scheme was largely retained within our local support scheme and we have continued to protect pensioners, as prescribed by Central Government. Burnley Borough Council’s Council Tax Support Scheme has remained unchanged since April 2015, except for the annual uprating of applicable amounts/premiums keeping it in line with the Housing Benefit Scheme and is formally ratified annually by Full Council.

The Council is currently considering proposals for the 2017-18 scheme and more details will be provided in the coming weeks.
