Bristol City Council is currently reviewing its Council Tax Reduction (CTR) scheme for 2018/19 and is seeking local people’s views on the issue.

Council Tax Reduction (CTR) is a discount scheme that is operated by all English councils to support households who have a low income with the cost of their council tax. It was introduced following the abolition of Council Tax Benefit (CTB) in 2013. The discount is calculated according to income and household circumstances and applied as a reduction to council tax bills.
