Local Council Tax Scheme

Request

This request relates to the 10% cut in the council tax benefit scheme and the 'localisation' of council tax support schemes.

1) How many people in your local authority area will face either (a) paying council tax when previously not paying council taxes or (b) paying increased council taxes

2) If possible, please quantify of that total how many are (i) registered disabled (ii) in receipt of severe or enhanced disability benefits, (iii) pensions related to being a war widow or disablement as a result of service in the Armed Forces.

The requests in Section 2 of my request should have been considered as part of either Equality Impact Assessments or internal quantification exercises.
