Number of C Tax payers in South Northamptonshire DC area and C Tax support

We're waiting for Mrs M E Berridge to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear South Northamptonshire District Council,

I would be grateful if you could advise the number of properties, to include individual households billed separately within one building, that were required to pay Council Tax to South Northamptonshire District Council for each of the financial years since April 2010.

Additionally, I am requesting confirmation of the amount of Council Tax Support which South Northamptonshire District Council has offered each year since the abolition of Council Tax benefit in April 2013, and finally the % of households which currently receive any assistance under this scheme.

Yours faithfully,

Mrs M E Berridge

Admin, CCC (SNC), South Northamptonshire District Council
