RESOLVED

 

KEY DECISION

 

That the Executive

 

a)      Considered the information as set out in the report and endorsed a proposed 2024/25 Local Council Tax Support Scheme which maintains the current 2023/24 scheme, allowing for the changes required to reflect the annual uprating of allowances and premiums and any statutory base legislation changes which are requires to be made to the scheme.

 

b)      Recommended the proposed Local Council Tax Support Scheme 2024/25 to Council for approval at its meeting on 7th December 2023.

 

 

Reason for Recommendations – to deliver a Local Council Tax Support Scheme for 2024/25 that meets statutory requirements.

 

Alternative Options Considered – The Council could choose to increase or     decreased the minimum contribution payable to the customer. Decreasing the contribution would lead to a budget pressure and increasing the contribution would result in the scheme exceeding the breakeven requirement as detailed in sections 7.1.2 and 7.1.3 of the report.
