Discount for single persons

A full Council Tax bill is based on at least two adults living in a property. If you're the only person over the age of 18 who lives in your home and it's your sole or main residence, you're entitled to a discount of at least 25 per cent on your Council Tax bill.

Please note - You must continue to pay Council Tax in accordance with your bill until your discount has been granted. Failure to do so may result in recovery action which could incur costs.
