Brent’s new local Council Tax Reduction Scheme

1. To what extent do you agree or disagree with the following principles?
(Required)
The scheme must provide assistance for the most financially vulnerable
To incentivise work
The scheme must be fair in its treatment of both in-work and unemployed residents
Scheme should include the means to require other adult members of the claimants’ household to contribute towards Council Tax liability
New scheme must be streamlined and simpler to administer
New scheme must be easier to understand and transparent to customers
2. In Brent’s new scheme, claimants will receive an award based on their income, in particular any earnings. DWP benefits will be disregarded, so if you only receive DWP benefits, you will receive 100% (unless you have any other adults living in your household apart from your partner). Please tell us to what extent do you agree or disagree with this proposal?
