Council Tax support scheme 2015/16
Our local Council Tax Reduction (CTR) scheme helps people on low income pay their Council Tax. We have listened to residents throughout the year, and it is proposed that no changes be made to our Council Tax Reduction scheme for 2015/16. Find out more about the current scheme and if you have any comments, please send them to us by 5 December 2015.
Views sought on public involvement in planning
New Forest District Council has published a revised Statement of Community Involvement setting out how residents can have their voices heard on district-wide planning strategy as well as on planning applications that may affect them. View and comment on the Statement of Community Involvement.
