Hastings Borough Council is consulting about changes to the current Council Tax Reduction Scheme. This Scheme reduces council tax bills for people on a low income, by up to 100%.

To keep the Scheme as fair as possible and in line with the needs of the community the Council wants to consult with the community on their proposals.

For further information and to complete the survey online, please visit at www.hastings.gov.uk. Click on Council Tax Reduction Scheme on the home page. For those who do not have access to a computer, the Community Contact Centre at the Town Hall, open during normal working hours Monday – Friday (10.00 opening Wednesday) has computers available for the public to use. The consultation ends on 28 October 2018.
