Find out how to claim for Housing Benefit and Council Tax Support
Our Council Tax, Housing Benefits and Business Rates computer systems are unavailable from 2.30pm on Friday 28 February to prepare for 2014-15 Council Tax bills, Business Rates bills and Benefit letters. It should be back Tuesday 4 March, but an exact time isn’t available. Customer service advisors at the Council House can answer general enquires but can’t view individual accounts.
The Government has decided that Council Tax Benefit will be abolished in April 2013 and be replaced with a local Council Tax Support Scheme. Find out more and have your say.
