County Council

Non-legal words

In some parts of England there is still two-tier local government:

  • The county council provides services including education and social care
  • Two or more district councils provide services including housing and Housing Benefit

Accommodation provided by a county council (eg as part of its social care function) can count as specified accommodation for Housing Benefit purposes.
