Council Tax Reduction
BASSETLAW residents who are eligible for Council Tax Reduction
will be asked to make a slightly bigger contribution towards their
bill from April 1, 2014.
Last year, residents who were of working age and had previously
received Council Tax Benefit were required to make a contribution
of 8% of their Council Tax bill for the first time after Government
cuts forced Local Authorities to reduce their funding.

Update Affordable Housing Supplementary Planning Document
The council has updated its affordable Housing
Supplementary Planning Document
(SPD). The main change is that
people can now apply for relief from providing an affordable
housing contribution. The SPD also provides guidance on how to
calculate the level of contribution that may be sought from housing
applications and guidance on assessing development viability.
