Exceptional Hardship Policy
Our Exceptional Hardship Policy is there to assist residents who’ve applied for a Council Tax reduction and are facing exceptional hardship, where the support we’re already providing doesn’t meet the full Council Tax liability.
If you’re struggling to pay your Council Tax you may be able to apply for an Exceptional Hardship Payment.
