Views sought on council tax relief scheme for residents in West Norfolk
A public consultation has been launched on the proposed system of council tax relief for people on low incomes in West Norfolk.
Council officials say their plans for the 2019-20 financial year are the same as the present scheme, except for some “minor technical changes” reflecting welfare reforms.
Adrian Lawrence, the borough council’s cabinet member for housing, said: “I would encourage people to take this opportunity to review our proposals and let us know what they think.
“Once the consultation closes, we will consider all the responses received before finalising the scheme ready for April 1, 2019.”

The consultation, which opened last Tuesday, will continue until Friday, November 9.
