A new Council Tax Reduction Scheme for North Yorkshire Council

From 1 April next year, there will be a new single council in North Yorkshire, replacing the seven district and borough councils and the county council. Currently, the seven district and borough councils all have slightly different schemes for Council Tax Reduction, and by law, there has to be a single scheme covering the whole of the North Yorkshire area. All eight councils have been working together on proposals for a scheme that is more supportive, with the maximum level of reduction for the people most in need. The aim is that the single scheme will make claiming easy and provide up to 100% support for households on the lowest incomes. You can let us know what you think of the proposals for a new Council Tax Reduction Scheme for North Yorkshire Council by taking part in the consultation online at www.northyorks.gov.uk/council-tax-reduction-scheme-north-yorkshire-council. You can have your say up to midnight on 18 September 2022, so please let us know your views before then.
