To consider the proposed Council Tax Rebate and Council Tax Rebate Discretionary schemes.


(1)  The Leader approves the Council Tax Rebate and Council Tax Rebate Discretionary Scheme as set out in Appendices 1 and 2 to the report


(2)  The Leader grants the Director of Service Delivery delegated authority to implement and, if necessary, amend the Scheme, such delegated authority to include any measures necessary for or incidental to its management and administration


In accordance with section 17 of the Council’s Policy and Performance Advisory Committee Procedure Rules, the call-in procedure shall not apply to this decision given its urgency. A decision is urgent if, in the view of the decision maker, any delay likely to be caused by the call-in process would, for example, seriously prejudice the Council’s or the public’s interests.

Reasons for the decision:

This is a new scheme which needs to be implemented as a matter of urgency and so executive approval for the scheme is being sought from the Leader. The Leader is being asked to authorise the Director of Service Delivery to implement and administer the scheme as there is no existing officer delegation in place.
