This circular advises local authorities of changes to inspection arrangements for Housing Benefit and Council Tax Benefit (HB/CTB) in England from April 2011. The changes, which have Ministerial approval, reflect the:
- improvement in HB/CTB performance at a national level in recent years
- Government’s localism agenda, which includes maximising accountability to communities and abolishing the Audit Commission, which currently carries out HB/CTB inspections
- continuing need to reduce costs across the public sector
