North Somerset Council’s support scheme for council tax payments will be continued in the 2017-18 financial year.
The scheme offers help with paying council tax bills for people on low incomes and pensioners. However, working-age taxpayers receiving support must still pay at least 24.5 per cent of their total bill.
The decision was confirmed at a council meeting on Tuesday.
