Coronavirus : Council Tax help

Hardship fund

The Government recognises that COVID-19 is likely to have an impact on households and their income and recognises that, as a result, some individuals may struggle to meet Council Tax payments.

We have been awarded some Government funding to help our residents through this difficult time. The Government expects that billing authorities will primarily use their grant allocation to reduce the Council Tax liability of individuals in their area.

We are busy working on our policy and with software suppliers to enable us to administer this scheme as soon as possible.

You do not need to apply for the scheme, if you qualify for the scheme, we will reduce and reissue your bill.

Please check our website regularly as we will be updating the information as soon as it becomes available.
