Swindon Borough Council consults over benefit cuts plan
Residents have been asked for their views over planned cuts to council tax benefits in the Swindon area.
Conservative-run Swindon Borough currently pays £13m a year in council tax benefit which is then reimbursed by the government.
Next year this will fall to £11m and although some savings can be made in other areas, a cut of £1.1m is still needed, the council has said.
Councillors have said the cuts will not affect pensioners or disabled people.
The consultation runs until 9 November and people can give their views via the council website or at its civic offices.
