The Council is undertaking a review of council tax discounts and records show that some people have been receiving a 25% discount off their council tax bill because they have previously told us that they are the sole adult occupant living at the property.
To ensure that the discount is being claimed correctly, we are conducting an extensive review of households where a single person discount is currently awarded. We are working in partnership with a reputable external contractor, Datatank Ltd, who are managing this review on our behalf.
The review will involve performing further and more detailed checks on household residency which will include checking data from other sources and reviewing details from credit reference agencies.
