Garden waste collections

The council and our waste collection partners Allerdale Waste Services would like to apologise for the issues which have affected some properties' garden waste collections over the last couple of weeks. The issues have been caused by self-isolation and other staff absences. 

The advice for households who've not had their collection this week is to take bins back in and present them on their next scheduled garden waste collection day.

Households are advised to continue checking our website and social media accounts for the latest information on collections.

Non-Dependant Deductions

What is a non-dependant?

A non-dependant is any other adult living in the household other than the claimant or partner, this is often an adult son / daughter or elderly relative.

What are non-dependant deductions?

If you have other adults in the household who should make a contribution towards living expenses, deductions can be made from your benefit entitlement / reduction .

The deductions are made at varying rates depending on the level of the non-dependant's income. The deductions are made regardless of whether or not the non-dependant actually pays anything to the claimant. The tables below show the non-dependant deductions that are made from Housing Benefit and Council Tax Reduction, relative to the level of a non-dependant's income.  They also show the circumstances in which no non-dependant deduction is made.

The dedcutions can be made to both Housing Benefit and Council Tax benefit entitlements.
