About discounts and exemptions


If you think you may be entitled to a discount, or that you may be exempt, you can apply online here. Please note that this will involve creating an online account first.

If you receive a discount/exemption and there is a change in your circumstances which affects your entitlement, you must tell Council Tax within 21 days of the change. Failure to do so may lead to a fine.

From April 2020, changes were made to the charges on properties that remain unoccupied and unfurnished.

Please note, these discounts and exemptions are separate to council tax support and second adult rebate, which are benefits available if you cannot afford to pay your council tax. Further information if you are not sure whether to apply for a discount or exemption, or a benefit.

We aim to deal with applications for discounts within one month of receiving them. While you wait for your discount to be applied, please ensure that you continue to pay your council tax bill in line with the instalments set on your current bill.
