Covid 19 – working age customers in receipt of Local Council Tax Reduction Scheme (LCTRS)

There is no need to apply for this payment, it will automatically be awarded to your Council Tax account. Where your liability for Council Tax for 2020/21 is less than £150.00 for the year you will receive a reduced amount to cover the charge. Stratford-on-Avon District Council is working on this and will make these payment as soon as possible.
