Help change York’s regressive Council Tax support scheme

For years the Green Party has condemned the government’s cut to council tax benefit and the decision of the Labour administration to force York’s most vulnerable residents to pay an unaffordable amount of council tax. Since 2013, City of York Council has one of the most regressive council tax support schemes in the country. Last full council meeting there was finally an agreement among all political parties to review and to undertake a short consultation to implement changes as soon as possible.

Please complete the consultation (it should take less than 5 minutes)

See what Richard Bridge from York People’s Assembly wrote about the scheme last year, also, see the summary of extensive research undertaken by Advice York, or the full Advice York report.

The consultation will ask you how much additional discount should be provided and then how that should be funded.

If a 30% increase was provided – meaning the poorest residents in the city did not have to pay council tax – it would cost £1.15m. The Joseph Rowntree Foundation has estimated that City of York is already recouping £683,000 more than the central government cut, in essence a profit made from York’s poorest residents. For families who are only just managing to survive, as energy bills and rent rise much faster then wages, the extra £5 per week that they currently lose push many to breaking point.

The Green Party believes the council should do everything within its power to soften the blow of the scheme.

There are also a couple of drop-in session:

Thursday 12 November – Council Tax Support consultation drop-in session at Burton Stone Community Centre from 2.30pm to 7.30pm.
 Monday 16 November – Council Tax Support consultation drop-in session at Haxby Explore from 2.30pm to 7pm.
Tuesday 17 November – Council Tax Support consultation drop-in session at Acomb Explore from 2.30pm to 7.30pm.
Monday 23 November – Council Tax Support consultation drop-in session at Tang Hall Explore from 2.30pm to 7.30pm.
Tuesday 24 November – Council Tax Support consultation drop-in session at Copmanthorpe Library from 2.30pm to 6.30pm.
Thursday 26 November – Council Tax Support consultation drop-in session at Fulford Explore from 2.30pm to 5pm.

Vespertine – Seeing York Through New Eyes. Next up: The Silk Roads, 4.30-7.30pm Wed 11th November

‘The Silk Roads’ celebrates the cultural diversity of the businesses along two of York’s oldest streets – Walmgate and Fossgate. ‘The Silk Roads’ takes its name from the ancient trade routes that transported goods and the transmission of culture between East and West for over 1000 years. Passersby on the night have the opportunity to journey along the street and will be entertained with music and art inspired by the different cultures now based within businesses in these streets. The full programme is below and we look forward to seeing you there!

4.30pm-6.30pm ‘In Camera’ Art Installation | Stonebow House
In Camera is an immersive exhibition by York St John University’s BA Fine Art students, that uses the architecture of Stonebow house to reframe views of the City of York and its wider landscapes.
Please note that the exhibition is on the 4th Floor of Stonebow House and access is by the stairs only.

4.30pm-6pm Create your light up badge | Vespertine Gazebo outside St Crux Church
4.30-6.30pm Pop in to Walmgate Ale House for a sample of homemade mulled wine with your LED badge

5.00pm-6.00pm Musical Trail | Fossgate and Walmgate. Collect a series of handmade prints along the way to be added to the space at National Centre for Early Music

In response to the theme of the event music students from York St John University have created a ‘sound corridor’ along Fossgate and Walmgate to link the installation at Stonebow House with the music performances at the National Centre for Early Music. Fine Art students from York St John University have responded to the theme with a set of handmade prints based on visual details of the route which the audience can take. There will also be a pop-up exhibition of all the prints at Kiosk on Fossgate.

6.00pm-7.00pm Sound Installation by Lewis Thresh, Film by Yorkshire Film Archive, plus food and hot chocolate from Bicis Y Mas and Spring Espresso | National Centre for Early Music.

Lewis Thresh has made a sound piece that explores the voices and sounds of Fossgate and Walmgate; creating a soundscape for the foyer space at the National Centre for Early Music. Yorkshire Film Archive will also be showing a mini cinema silent film looking at the area and how it has changed over the years.

6.15pm and 7.00pm Musical Performances | National Centre for Early Music. With David Lancaster and Bramble Napskins

The audience are invited to add the print they collected earlier in the evening to an installation in NCEM’s auditorium, where musicians will respond to them as a musical score.

There will be two performances by the York-based group, The Bramble Napskins, of a newly written piece, ‘Vespertine’, by local composer David Lancaster. The piece, in three movements, takes its inspiration from John Dowland’s Lute Songs, and the group will improvise around the themes of darkness and night.
