That the Council Tax Support Scheme 2022-23 and Council Tax Hardship Fund proposals detailed in the report be agreed and that the approval and adoption of such be recommended to Council as part of the budget setting process.
To provide for recommendations to be made to Council in respect of arrangements for the Council Tax Scheme 2022-23 and Council Tax Hardship Fund.
To recommend to change the scheme for 22/23 in particular in light of the financial challenges the Council faces, however, this would potentially mean that residents on benefits and / or a low income would be asked to pay Council Tax for the first time, or more Council Tax then they do now, at a time when residents are facing financial uncertainty.
