Seeking views on Local Council Tax Support

1 September 2020
Residents and interested parties will be asked for their input into a review of the Local Council Tax Support (LCTS) scheme as part of a consultation commissioned last year.
In 2019, members agreed to a review of the scheme once more information was known about the take-up of LCTS following the introduction of Universal Credit. The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has shown there is a growing need to ensure that the Thurrock's LCTS has sufficient capacity for residents who find themselves unemployed and without savings.
