Single Person Discount Review

The Audit Commission reports that over £200m of Single Person Discounts (SPD) may be inappropriately awarded nationally and as such impacting upon the already overstretched budgets of councils all over the country. As such Cheshire East Council, in partnership with CapacityGrid are undertaking a SPD review. We will use a combination of council data, third party data, including credit referencing and specialist validation services. This is to:

  • Confirm the discount for genuine claimants
  • Remove incorrectly claimed discounts

If you have recently received a letter about your entitlement to Single Person Discount, to ensure we have the correct information please complete the online single person discount review form.
