Freedom of Information Request

Council Tax Reductions

Received: 20 January 2021

Hi there,

I am writing to make an open government request for all the information to which I am entitled under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

Please send me:

1. How many people are estimated to be eligible for council tax reductions (including those who already receive council tax reductions) in your borough currently? (Can you also give me this figure as a percentage of the total number of residents in the borough)

2. How many people currently receive council tax reductions in your borough? (Can you also give me this figure as a percentage of the total number of residents in the borough)

I would like the above information to be provided to me as electronic copies. If this request is too wide or unclear, I would be grateful if you could contact me as I understand that under the Act, you are required to advise and assist requesters. If any of this information is already in the public domain, please can you direct me to it, with page references and URLs if necessary. If the release of any of this information is prohibited on the grounds of breach of confidence, I ask that you supply me with copies of the confidentiality agreement and remind you that information should not be treated as confidential if such an agreement has not been signed. I understand that you are required to respond to my request within the 20 working days after you receive this letter. I would be grateful if you could confirm in writing that you have received this request.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,
