Consultation on changes to Ealing Council's council tax support (CTS) scheme

This consultation was open between 16 September and 27 October 2019. Results have not yet been published for this consultation so the content of this page is as it was when first published. This page will be updated when results are made available.

The consultation

The council is considering changing the current council tax support (CTS) scheme from April 2020 and replacing it with an income banded council tax discount scheme for working age residents. 

Certain groups, such as pensioners, will not be affected by the changes. Working age persons currently in receipt of Council Tax Support may be affected by the proposed changes.

Your views

We are seeking the views of residents on the proposed changes to the council tax support scheme. Please read the consultation document fully before completing a short survey to submit your views.

There will also be several drop-in sessions at libraries within the borough where you can get more information on the proposed changes.

This consultation will be open until 27 October 2019. 

What happens next?

Feedback from the public consultation will be included in a report that will be presented to Ealing councillors who will make the final decision on the scheme. The scheme will come into effect from 1 April 2020 if the proposed changes are agreed.
