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.

A raft of five consultations have been launched by Bristol City Council to get local people’s views on their proposals for how they could deliver certain local services with a reduced budget.

Libraries, public toilets, school crossing patrols, Neighbourhood Partnerships and Bristol Community Links are all covered in the proposals. The ‘Your Neighbourhood’ consultations ask people to comment on as many of these proposals as possible. They include an interactive map to help people judge and comment on the combined effects of the different options they can choose from.
