    Every local authority can make their own rules so it's impossible to answer.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    Hello. Council tax reductions vary depending on the council who represent you. I was awarded LCWRA 4 weeks ago and have been told my current reduction will change. I have asked for another assessment in light of the fact that I receive LCWRA, and I am waiting to hear what I will have to pay. My concern is that they will give no reduction or significantly less than before. Is anyone else in the same boat? Has anyone had experience of a significant reduction of help because they were awarded LCWRA?
