  • Discounts on homes undergoing major repairs or structural alterations

    If your home is vacant because you are carrying out major repairs or structural alterations to it, you can get a 50% discount on your council tax.

  • Disabled person discount

    If your home has been adapted to meet the needs of a disabled person living there, you may be able to get a discount on your council tax.

  • Second homes

    If you have a furnished property that you do not use as your only or main home, you will have to pay full council tax.

  • Other council tax discounts

    We don't count (disregard) certain people when we look at the number of people living in a property for council tax purposes.
