Annual Council Tax Support Scheme consultation - Time is running out to have your say

Council Tax Support Scheme

Published: Tuesday, 12th September 2023

The borough council runs a Council Tax Support Scheme, which is designed to help working age people with the cost of their Council Tax if they are on a low income.

This scheme is reviewed annually and each time the Borough Council of King's Lynn & West Norfolk invites all residents to have their say on it. The consultation opened in August and will close on 1 October 2023. This is separate from the Government’s national scheme for pension age people.

Cllr Chris Morley, Cabinet Member for Finance, said:

“Every household in west Norfolk pays Council Tax so it is right that they have the opportunity to comment on this scheme and I would urge everyone to take part.

“We are proposing something different to what the borough council has offered in the past. Our current scheme covers 84% of the eligible household’s council tax bill. The proposed new scheme offers no cap on support and can cover up to the full amount, 100%, of the council tax bill for all eligible working age people.”

Details of the proposed scheme and the consultation questionnaire are available on the council’s website at until 1 October 2023.
