The new legislation, which came into effect on April 1 as part of the UK government’s welfare reform, created bedroom subsidy changes. Under the new rules, anyone who is considered to under-occupy one bedroom will have their housing benefit reduced by 14 per cent.
Convener for corporate services, councillor Ian McApline, said: “I would urge anyone who feels they need help to understand bedroom subsidy changes, or who is facing financial hardship to get in touch.”
