Council tax discounts

There are various types of discounts and exemptions available to council tax payers which would reduce the amount of council tax to be paid. These do not depend on income but instead are granted if certain conditions are met.

Am I entitled to a discount?

If you think you are entitled to any of the discounts listed in this section please continue to pay your council tax bill but follow the instructions given. Once we have your details, we can consider whether the discount applies. If it does apply we will send out a new bill which takes into account any money you have already paid and shows the discount. You must notify us of a change in circumstances within 21 days.  Failure to do so could result in a penalty of £70 being imposed.
