The opportunity for residents of Tonbridge and Malling Borough and other key stakeholders runs out on Tuesday 30 August. The review by the Council into the way it gives help to working age households who need help to pay their Council Tax through its Council Tax Reduction Scheme is coming to an end, so now is the time to make your views known.


The Consultation questionnaire sets out 14 possible options for changes to the CTRS from 1 April 2017 and asks residents which options the Council should take forward in order to achieve the savings it needs to make.  Any changes will only affect working age people.  The Pension Age Scheme would be unaffected by the options set out in the Consultation.
