For Cabinet to consider whether to introduce a Council Tax discount for members of the Police Special Constabulary.
That the introduction of a 25% Council Tax Discount as a ‘class of case’ for members of the Police Special Constabulary, administered under the discretionary provisions of Section 13A (1) (c) Local Government Finance Act 1992, be approved.
Members of the Special Constabulary who reside in South Holland would benefit from a reduction in their Council Tax, in recognition of the service they provide in Lincolnshire and in turn providing an incentive for recruitment and retention
Do nothing – do not progress with the introduction of a discount scheme for SC’s, the Local Council Tax Support (CTS) scheme already exists to provide support to low income/benefit households, and this scheme is accessible to all residents with a Council Tax liability, including SC’s.
Wards Affected: (All Wards);
