Isle of Wight Council

Local Council Tax Support - Scheme

Consultation 2023/24

Each year the council must decide whether to change the local council tax support (LCTS) scheme for working age applicants in its area.

The changes will only affect working age claimants who currently receive LCTS or who may apply in the future.

The locally agreed changes do not affect people of pension age. The LCTS rules for these claimants are set nationally by the government.

This consultation closed on 28 September 2022.

After the consultation closes

Following this consultation, recommendations will be considered by the Full Council.

The new scheme will start on 1 April 2023.
