Decision maker:  Chief Executive

Decision:   28 May 2020

Decision status:  Recommendations Approved

Notice of proposed decision first published: 28/05/2020

This decision will be taken under urgency procedures.

Reason for urgency:
The requirement placed upon authorities is to make payments as soon as possible using existing approval mechanisms. In addition, software was required and this has now been delivered and tested.

Residents require to know how much that remains on their account is to be paid and our council tax team will be able to assist those facing difficulty in paying knowing the balance outstanding.The decision needs to be taken and implemented immediately to provide residents with the reduction funded by government.

This decision is a key decision and any delay in implementing it would seriously prejudice the Council’s or the Public Interest within the meaning of Standing Order 14. The provision for call-in of key decisions under Standing Order 14 shall therefore not apply to this decision.

Anticipated restriction: Open  -
