Uttlesford District Council reviews Council Tax discount scheme

Uttlesford District Council is reviewing the Council Tax discount offered to residents who live alone.

Forms are being sent out and any residents who receive one should go to the authority’s website uttlesford.gov.uk/spdreview to update their details and make sure they are still eligible to receive a 25 per cent single person discount.

Anyone without internet access should sign and return their form in the envelope provided.

Genuine claimants will still be eligible for a discount but it may be withdrawn if residents’ circumstances have changed. The same will happen if a claimant does not update their details.
