To consider options for the 2022/23 Council
Tax Support scheme and approve consultation.
Approve consultation for the continuation of the current Council Tax Support scheme, including uprating in line with DWP’s annual update of allowances and premiums for housing benefit for 2022/23.
The recommendation will continue to align the CTS scheme and uprating for working age customers with DWP provisions for Housing Benefit and the CTS scheme for pensioners.
This has been consistent each year since the introduction of local Council Tax Support schemes.
Do nothing – retain the current scheme without uprating.
