A Council Tax discount of 25% is available for properties occupied by one liable person aged 18 years or over.  The discount is variable and is between 10-50% where the property is not the sole or main residence of any person.  Water and Sewerage charges do not attract a variable discount.

In assessing residency, certain categories of residents are disregarded, for example:

  • certain students, student nurses and apprentices
  • long-term patients in a hospital or a hostel
  • persons in prison
  • severely mentally impaired persons
  • certain types of care workers

Documentary evidence must be provided to support each application and the type of evidence required is detailed on the relevant form.

If you are granted a discount and the circumstances which led to that discount change, you must tell us straight away.

Other types of discount may be available. To apply for a discount please download a form from this page or contact us using the details below.
