We want your views on proposals to remove imprisonment as a penalty for non-payment of council tax.
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- remove an outdated and disproportionate response to civil debt issues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
