Cheshire East Council is carrying out a review of people claiming a single person discount (SPD) on their Council Tax. See news release here.
Residents should also be aware that the audit is being carried out on behalf of Cheshire East Council by “Northgate”, a reputable company that carries out this kind of work for many local authorities. It is all carried out over the phone and by letter, so there will be no doorstep visits. They are also obliged to comply with data protection rules.
