Removal of 100% Council Tax Reduction from 1st April

Arun District Council recently voted to remove the 100% Council Tax Reduction to working age claimants from April 2017. ALL claimants of working age will now be charged at least £3.70 per week towards council tax, regardless of their income.

There are 5,722 households in the Arun area who are currently receiving Council Tax Reduction. Arun District Council are currently in the process of advising affected households via post. Please ensure you read your letter carefully to check your council tax liability, as failure to make payments could result in legal action being taken against you.
