More about the Single Person's Discount review
Each year local authorities nationwide receive a high volume of applications for single person discount. Single person discount is claimed when an adult is the sole adult occupant of the property. 20,800 properties in the Borough of Scarborough currently receive the discount of 25%, out of a total of 58,200 properties.
While most residents are claiming the discount appropriately, there are a minority who are attempting to defraud the system. These residents may not have reported a change in their circumstances and are receiving the discount when they are no longer entitled to it. The aim of the review is to detect such cases.
We do understand that occasionally circumstances may not be so easy to explain. To help in these situations we have included the most frequently asked questions that can arise throughout this review period.
