Consultation process

The original CTS scheme was the result of extensive consultation with residents and stakeholders as well as the GLA. As no changes to the original scheme are proposed no consultation has been undertaken. The scheme will be changed for 2016/17 to accommodate Universal Credit. This and any other changes the council chooses to make will be the subject of extensive consultation in 2015.
