Local Council Tax Support Scheme Consultation

(10 September - 5 November 2012)

The Government is ending the national Council Tax Benefit scheme from 31 March 2013. Instead, all councils, including Poole, have had to develop their own Council Tax Support schemes to replace it from 1 April 2013.

The Council asked for residents' views on the proposed scheme. The consultation took place from the 10 September 2012 to 5 November 2012. It was open to residents, Council Tax Benefit Claimants, those working with people who may be affected by the changes and anyone else with an interest.  An online form was available, and questionnaires were available from any Poole library, or by contacting the helpline to request a paper copy.

The feedback helped the Council  when deciding the final scheme. The consultation results, and information on the final scheme, are available on the Council Tax Support Scheme page.
