Detail of outcome

Earlier in 2010, the government consulted on proposals for the localisation of support for Council Tax in England. This followed the announcement at Spending Review 2010 that support for Council Tax would be localised from 2013 to 2014 and expenditure reduced by 10% from the same date.

This document sets out the outcome of that consultation, how the government intends to respond to the issues raised, and its plans for enabling local authorities to introduce localised schemes in England from April 2013.

Consultation description

Localising support for Council Tax is part of a wider policy of decentralisation, giving councils increased financial autonomy and a greater stake in the economic future of their local area. This supports the government’s wider agenda to enable stronger, balanced economic growth across the country and complements the government’s proposals for other incentives, such as the New Homes Bonus.
