Each year Central Government (DCLG) requires local authorities to approve a Policy for helping those in need to claim a reduction in council tax.  Whilst central government determine the level for pension age claimants, the Policy for working age claimants is discretionary.  Since this Policy started in April 2013 Mendip has retained the same Policy, currently helping 6,712 households and reducing council tax by over £5.5m.  Following a review by the Council Tax Reduction Members Panel in August 2016, it is recommended that the Policy remain unchanged for 2017/18
