In some circumstances a discount may apply.

Certain people will not be counted when looking at the number of adults living in a property:

There is a 25% discount if only one person is countable and 50% if none are countable. 

If you live alone, you will need to apply for a Single Person Discount.

If you have an unoccupied property, then please check our Furnished and Unfurnished Properties pages.

Applying for a discount

To ensure the criteria is met, we will need to discuss the full circumstances with you for the majority of discounts, however for several discounts you will be required to complete an application form and provide the requested evidence. Forms can be requested by email: or on 01205 314200. Please send completed forms to us either by email or by post. 

Change in Circumstances

If you qualify for a Council Tax discount you must tell us within 21 days if there is a change that might affect it. We can impose a £70 penalty if you do not tell us about a change. Keep us informed of changes on or by calling 01205 314200.
