Council tax changes to hit low earners and vulnerable

VULNERABLE residents on benefits and earners on a low income will have to find more money to pay their council tax bill this year.

Bradford Council is reducing the amount of Council Tax Reduction (CTR) working age residents will receive after the Government cut its funding to the authority.

The changes will hit those who are working and on benefits, with CTR only assessed based on a band A property, but will not have an impact on pensioners.

Under the new rules, anyone who previously qualified for a £3.99 reduction per week or less will no longer receive a discount.


These changes have hit Brad Scott, of Coppicewood Avenue, Lidgett Green, who claims he will now have to find £289.46 a year to cover his council tax bill.

Mr Scott, who claims Employment Support Allowance, cannot work because he suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder - a condition which was the result of a house fire more than two decades ago.

The Bradford University graduate has trouble sleeping and is on medication to keep him awake during the day and medicine to help him sleep.
