Additional information

We believe that getting into debt is not a crime. We are consulting on proposals that will:

  • bring council tax debt into line with other forms of civil debt
  • remove an outdated and disproportionate response to civil debt issues
  • reduce costs and facilitate more citizen-focused approaches to council tax debt prevention
