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

All of our application forms and notes are available under our Can I get a Council Tax Reduction page. If you cannot see the form you require, then please contact us at or on 01507 601111.

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 01507 601111.
