We are always interested in hearing your views about what we do
Consultation on additional evidence base documents
As part of the Local Plan Review (2016-2036) examination the Inspectors have wrote to the Council setting out the further work required and the way forward for the Examination.
The Council has now completed this work and is consulting new documents (reference F44 and F47-F53 in the Examination Library) which form part of the supporting evidence base for the ongoing Local Plan Examination.
This consultation will inform the Inspectors in understanding the issues affecting the Local Plan and setting agendas for the future sessions of the Examination Hearing, which is anticipated to commence in early 2024.
The consultation will run for 6 weeks, starting on Friday, 8 September. To be considered, representations must be received, at the latest, by 11:59pm on Friday, 20 October 2023.
Council Tax Support Scheme 2024/2025 Consultation Survey
We help people on low incomes with the cost of their council tax by awarding them a discount to reduce their bill. This is known as the Council Tax Support (CTS) scheme.
There is a national set of regulations for a CTS Scheme for pension age customers, but we decide the rules for our own CTS schemes for working age people in our area. This consultation is only about the rules for the CTS Scheme for working age people.
We review the working age CTS Scheme each year and we are proposing some changes from 1 April 2024. We want to know what you think of these changes so we can take your views into account when we make our final decision.
The consultation will open on 21 August 2023 and close on 1 October 2023.
