Council tax discounts

There are various discounts and exemptions available to council tax payers to reduce the amount of council tax payable. 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, please continue to pay your council tax bill but follow the instructions given. Once we have your details, we will consider whether the discount applies. If it does apply we will send you a new bill taking into account any money you have already paid and showing 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.
