Re: Proposed Council Tax Support Scheme 2015-16

North Kesteven District Council has considered how it can fund the Council Tax Support (CTS) scheme from April 2015 and proposes one change to the current scheme which affects the treatment of Child Maintenance Income.

Before making a scheme, North Kesteven District Council is required to consult with any person we consider are likely to have an interest in the operation of the scheme.

The proposed changes to the scheme have been published on our website at:

http://www.n-kesteven.gov.uk/residents/council-tax-support-and-housing-benefits/council-tax-benefit-is-changing/

The consultation period ends on 28 November 2014 – please consider our proposed changes and let us have your views using the online ‘Tell us what you think’ questionnaire through the above website address.

Councillors will decide the final shape of the Council Tax Support scheme for 2015/16 when they meet in January 2015.We want the views from residents whether they get Council Tax Benefit or not to ensure we make an informed decision.

I look forward to your input into this significant change.

 

Digby is located in the county of Lincolnshire.  A small rural village just 6 miles north of Sleaford and 12 miles south of Lincoln.

With a population of just over 500, Digby enjoys peace and tranquility that's becoming hard to find in many parts of England.

Digby C of E School has 88 pupils and is situated behind the Church.

The fine Anglican Church dedicated to St.Thomas-a-Becket was built in the Gothic style and well worth a visit.

The Digby War Memorial Hall is located in Church Street, opposite the old pub built in during the 1600s, The Red Lion.  The gardens fronting the hall have been extensively refurbished and during the evening the multi-coloured LED lights which represent the searchlights used during WW2 are clearly visible.

The Spires and Steeples heritage trail runs straight through the village, as does the annual Spires and Steeples Challenge, an annual charity run/walking event.
