Poole Council cuts tax benefit for residents on low incomes

“It will make my life more of a struggle”

Residents on low incomes in Poole are faced with paying more council tax after a reduction in support was approved. The Borough of Poole’s decision to reduce its support will affect 3,600 residents, who will have to pay a minimum of 14 per cent of their bill in 2015/16. Helen Thomas, a self-employed crafter in Poole, tells us about her situation, while the council leader, Elaine Atkinson explains the reason behind the move and what the council will do to help those people.
