Council Tax Support

Council Tax Support – Have Your Say

Council Tax Support replaced Council Tax Benefit in 2013 and is now a local scheme administered in Hyndburn by Hyndburn Borough Council.  Other local authorities also have their own schemes.

Each year we must decide whether or not to revise or replace our scheme and any potential changes must first be put to a public consultation.

The Council is considering options for Council Tax Support from 2020 and we welcome your views on various options.

This consultation runs from 13th September to 5th December 2019 is open to everyone.  The questions we ask should only take a few minutes to answer and we will use the responses we get to guide any decisions about the future of Council Tax Support in Hyndburn.

If you would like to read more before taking part, all documents relating to this consultation can be found here.
