The government abolished council tax benefit in 2013 and every council had to design its own scheme to provide local support to working-age residents on low incomes. The scheme is called local council tax support (LCTS). In Royal Greenwich the scheme was last reviewed in 2019. 

The Council is proposing to change the scheme as it applies to working-age residents in the borough, to help residents through the cost-of-living crisis and beyond. 

The Council must consult on its proposals and, if agreed, have the new scheme in place by March 2023 to start on 1 April 2023. If the proposals are not agreed the current scheme remains the same. 

These changes will not apply to pensioners who have reached the age for claiming pension credit, in other words the changes will only affect people of working age. 

The government’s changes to benefits, will not affect existing council tax discounts and exemptions, such as the 25% single person’s discount and the exemption for people who are severely mentally impaired.  

We would like you to have your say on this short survey.

All admission authorities are required to formally consult if they want to make any changes to their schools’ admission arrangements for the following school year. They also have to consult on their schools’ admission arrangements at least once every seven years, even if there have been no changes during that period.

The Royal Borough of Greenwich co-ordinates an annual school admissions consultation on behalf of all community schools in the borough.

The consultation on school admission arrangements for September 2024 is now open. The consultation will run from Tuesday 22 November until midnight, Friday 6 January 2023.

Proposed changes to the school admission arrangements for Community schools for 2024 intakes include:

  • Linton Mead Primary School to reduce its published admission number (PAN) from 60 to 30.
  • New definition for the medical/social care needs criterion within the oversubscription criteria.
  • Better clarity on the rationale for consideration and how applications are assessed under the medical/social needs criterion of the oversubscription criteria.

The Council is working to build a comprehensive picture of how the rising cost-of-living is impacting the borough through its campaign Greenwich Supports. 

Local businesses are vital to boosting the economy, providing jobs for local people and helping build strong communities and increasing vibrancy in our town centres and high streets.  

However, the Council recognises that local businesses and employers will likely be facing similar challenges to those of their staff, with rising costs and other inflationary pressures. Now is the chance to have your say. 

From 06 Jul 2022 to 15 Jan 2023

We have launched a survey to better understand how we can support residents in Royal Greenwich with the rising cost of living. This will be part of a wider plans to reach residents across the borough with chances to meet Councillors face to face and help close any gaps in support.

We want you to share how the cost of living is affecting you and your communities, so that our diverse borough can shape how the Council responds to issues such as food poverty and hardship.  

Due to the personal nature of questions, we want you to know any information gathered will remain anonymous and not be shared.  

We appreciate you taking the time to fill in this survey and look forward to working with you to build a better and brighter future for all Royal Greenwich residents. At the end of the survey, you will find links on where you can get support, and who to contact.
