Single person discount
You may be able to reduce the amount you have to pay.
If you apply for a discount or exemption, you must continue to pay your current instalments until your bill is amended.
The single person discount is 25% off your bill. You can claim if you are aged 18 years or over and:
- You are living alone in the property, or
- The other adults living in the property are not counted for council tax purposes.
If someone else in your household is working away from home or taking extended holidays, this is not usually enough for you to qualify for a single person discount.
If you are receiving single person discount and your circumstances have changed, you need to tell us.
