Consultation on our Local Council Tax Support Scheme 2020/21

Local Council Tax Support (LCTS) is a means-tested discount to help people on low incomes pay their Council Tax. It is a local scheme run by North Somerset Council that replaced Council Tax Benefit. We are considering changing our Local Council Tax Support scheme to provide additional support and alleviate financial pressures on low income families.

If you would like to find out further information and give us your views on the three options we are considering please follow this link.

The consultation closes on the 29th November 2019.
