Council Tax Reduction - Further Review
If after receiving a review decision by us and you remain dissatisfied then you can seek an independent ruling from the Council Tax Reduction Review Panel (CTRRP) who will conduct a further review. You must do this within 42 days of receiving Fife Council’s review decision.
Remember a further review by the CTRRP can only be requested after the relevant local authority has carried out an internal review.
The only exception to this is if you do not receive a written response from us within two months of the original request. If this occurs you or your representative can request an independent ruling from the CTRRP.
The CTRRP is an independent body which is an addition to the Scottish Tribunals Service, providing an additional review service to safeguard individual’s rights to administrative justice when assessing an individual’s eligibility for Council Tax Reduction. They will consider the facts presented to them and give an independent ruling as to whether the decision made by your local authority is correct or not.
An application for further review should be made directly by you or your representative in writing to the:
Council Tax Reduction Review Panel
450 Argyle Street
Glasgow G2 8LH
Further information, including application forms, are available via their website http://counciltaxreductionreview.scotland.gov.uk/index.htm or by telephoning 0141 242 0223.
Many decisions can be revised once additional information is provided meaning that a review may not be necessary. If you receive your Council Tax Reduction notification and you think the reduction applied is incorrect it is always best to ask for us to reconsider the decision first. To do this you can write to us or email us within two months of your CTR notification at firstname.lastname@example.org telling us why you think the award is wrong.
