Single person discount

If you are the only adult living in your main home, we will reduce your council bill by 25%.

The full council tax bill is based on the assumption that two or more adults live in a property as their main home. If only one person over 18 lives in the property, that person is entitled to a 25% discount.

If someone in your household is temporarily away from home, for example on holiday or working away and only coming back occasionally, your property still counts as that person's main home.

You can only claim a single person discount for your only or main home; you cannot claim it for a second home.

If your circumstances change, you must tell us immediately, or we may charge you a penalty of £70.

Examples of changes that may affect your discount include:

  • Another adult comes to stay with you and this is that person's main home
  • A child in the household reaches the age of 18
  • You permanently leave your home
