Local Council Tax Support (LCTS) 2023-24

Start of consultation: 03 Aug 2022
End of consultation: 28 Sep 2022


There are more than 5,000 Isle of Wight residents on lower incomes who are presently in receipt of local council tax support.

In the context of the current cost-of-living crisis, this consultation is open over the next two months to consider whether the scheme that supports these Islanders should be amended. The implications of changes to the scheme could affect both recipients of local council tax support as well as users of council services more widely and therefore will be open to all residents to participate.

Consultation Activity:

Please read the background information about the LCTS scheme and complete our online survey. An easy read version of the guidance is also available.

Printed surveys can also be requested.

Coastal defences at Yaverland and Shanklin - Environment Agency

Start of consultation: 27 Jun 2022
End of consultation: 31 Aug 2022


Residents and visitors on the Isle of Wight are being encouraged to share their views on the coastal frontages at Shanklin and Yaverland.  

The Environment Agency, in partnership with the Isle of Wight Council, are working together alongside industry experts to reduce the risk of flooding and coastal erosion to more than 600 properties in Shanklin and Yaverland.
Both projects are still in the development stages, so gathering what people value most about these important coastal frontages now is invaluable.  

Consultation Activity:

More information about how to get involved and share your views is available on the Environment Agency website.

You can provide your feedback about Yaverland and Shanklin.

The closing date for responses is Sunday 31 July 2022 for Shanklin and Wednesday 31 August 2022 for Yaverland. Paper copies can also be found within Shanklin and Sandown libraries.
