Detail of outcome
This document sets out the summary of responses and government conclusions over how to regulate for the change required to the council tax base and provide certainty over the funding of local precepting authorities.
Localising Council Tax support is part of a wider set of reforms to the welfare system.
This consultation sets out the government’s proposals to provide certainty to local precepting authorities by allowing the Council Tax base for those areas to be calculated excluding localised Council Tax support reductions.
It seeks views on:
- the government’s proposals for providing certainty for the funding of local precepting authorities
- whether proposals for providing certainty to local precepting authorities should also be applied for all special items
- the draft amending statutory instrument
