Citizen and Stakeholder Survey 2013

In January and February 2013, we invited residents, and representatives of local organisations and businesses, to give their views. The results of the surveys are available.

Council tax on empty properties

We made proposals to change the council tax discounts and exemptions on empty properties and sought residents' views . All comments received were considered by the Council and the changes came into effect from April 2013. 

Changes to Council Tax Benefit

The Council carried out consultation in relation to the Council Tax benefit changes and invited local people and organisations to give their views. Council Tax Benefit was abolished from April 2013 and replaced with a local scheme of Council Tax Support.
