The Executive Member for Corporate Resources presented the report to provide an update to Members on the operation of the Council Tax Reduction Scheme during 2021/22 and to advise Members that the scheme needed to be reviewed and formally adopted by Council for the year 2022/23. The Scheme maintained support at 100% for those on the lowest income households, one of around 20% of Councils in the Country and the only one in Devon.
RECOMMENDED to Council that:
(1) The existing provisions within the Scheme be used to increase the upper income threshold in Band 1 from £75.00 to £78.00 and the lower threshold in Band B from £75.01 to £78.01; and
(2) The Council Tax Reduction Scheme (attached as Appendix A) be adopted for the year 2022/23.
The vote was unanimous.
