Council Tax Reduction

Statistics Publications

From 2014-15 onwards, Council Tax Reduction (CTR) statistics are published each quarter. In the first 3 quarters of the year, 2 tables will be published showing number of recipients and the weekly income foregone for each local authority, as at a point in time in each month. In the last quarter, a full compendium will be published which will give detailed statistical information about the whole year and total income foregone through CTR for the year.
