Council tax benefit changes
Council tax benefit is being abolished by the government and each council has to replace it with a locally funded scheme. Details will be published in early 2013.
The government is also giving councils less money to fund these local support schemes, meaning we have to make savings to keep the borough's council tax low. If you are a council taxpayer in Hillingdon, these changes will affect you, even if you do not claim benefit.
The results of the consultation and details of the new scheme will be published in early 2013.
