Council Tax Reduction Scheme 2017-18

The first Southampton Council Tax Reduction Scheme 2014 was agreed by the Council on 16 January 2013. Subsequently the Southampton Council Tax Reduction Scheme has been approved each year under delegated authority by the Chief Financial Officer, with the 2016-17 scheme approved on 18th January 2016.
This report recommends changes to that agreed scheme to implement subsequent legislative changes and to take account of the annual benefits uprating which come into effect in April 2017.
