Council Tax Support for those most in need

Mid Sussex District Council and West Sussex County Council have
agreed to provide an extra Council Tax discount of up to £150 in 2021/22
for those most in need.
Residents on low incomes receive Council Tax Support to help reduce their Council Tax
but many are still struggling financially because of the coronavirus pandemic. The
additional £150 support provided by West Sussex County Council and Mid Sussex District
Council will help residents on Council Tax Support to make ends meet
Councillor Ruth de Mierre, Cabinet Member for Customer Services said:
“Many people will be facing serious financial challenges because of the Covid-19
pandemic and we must do everything we can to support our residents through these tough
times.
“This much needed support for our most vulnerable residents will be processed without the
need for an application and we will send an updated Council Tax bill that confirms the
reduction to all eligible households.
“If you’re struggling to pay your Council Tax then please contact us as soon as possible.
We can put you in contact with the Money & Pensions Service, who provide free
independent debt advice. They can help you to put payments of non-priority debts, like
credit card bills, on hold and create arrangements that work for you and your unique
financial situation.
