Council Tax Reduction is a discount that helps people on low incomes pay their Council Tax bill. The level of discount is based on the income and circumstances of the household.
Each of the three councils that make up the new Westmorland and Furness Council area - Barrow Borough Council, South Lakeland District Council and Eden District Council - run similar but separate schemes.
By law a single Council Tax Reduction Scheme must be launched from April 2023, covering the whole of the Westmorland and Furness Council area.
A consultation is now underway. To find out more and take part in a survey, please visit: Westmorland and Furness
Hard copies of the Westmorland and Furness Council consultation document and survey are also available, during normal office hours, from:
