All customers will receive an annual, up to date, notification letter at the council’s financial year end.

Housing Benefit

Whenever a change has been processed, a letter is sent to you detailing –

  • the information used in the assessment of that change
  • what the new Housing Benefit award is
  • any under or over payment created if applicable

Council Tax Reduction

From the 1 April 2023, whenever a change has been processed, you will only receive a new Council Tax Bill stating what balance is outstanding and what the payments due have changed to.
