Views wanted over council tax benefit in Pendle
4:17pm Wednesday 26th September 2012 in News
RESIDENTS in the borough have until October 25 to give their views on chances to council tax benefit.
Questionnaires are available in Council Shops, Libraries and Number One Market Street.
Alternatively you can visit www.pendle. gov.uk/benefitchanges or phone 01282 661661 to request a copy in the post.
Dean Langton, Pendle Council’s head of central services, said: “The Government is making big changes to Council Tax Benefit and we’re asking for residents’ views.
“As part of the wider reforms of the welfare system, they’re asking councils to devise their own local council tax discount schemes.
“This will replace council tax benefit.”
