Council tax support

Closed 11 Jul 2017

Opened 26 Jun 2017


This consultation has been withdrawn. There will be no changes to the council tax support scheme at this time.


Council tax support is a means-tested discount that helps people who have a low income, or no income, to pay their council tax bill.

We are consulting on whether to change the council tax support scheme in order to find some of the savings that we need to make.

It is important that you give us your views to help shape your local support scheme.

Why We Are Consulting

Cuts in government funding mean that Leicester City Council has to find substantial savings by 2020. We could make some of these savings by changing the council tax support scheme.

We carried out a similar consultation last year, but we now need to consider this again before we approve a scheme for 2018/19.

Before completing the questionnaire, please read the information booklet that is available to download below.

What Happens Next

We will evaluate all consultation responses and will publish the results of our findings online.

Councillors will make a final decision on the options before 31 January 2018.
