Printer-friendly versionPDF version

As part of Welfare Reform, from 1st April 2013, the Government abolished Council Tax Benefit and replaced it with a new local financial support scheme, called Council Tax Reduction Scheme (CTRS).

Consultation on a draft Council Tax Reduction Scheme for Copeland took place in September 2012 in order to meet budget timescales for 2012/13.  The key recommendations following the consultation process were outlined in a report to the Executive on Tuesday 13th November 2012. You can read full details of our scheme here.
