Apply for a single person Council Tax discount
The full Council Tax bill assumes that there are 2 or more adults (i.e. people aged 18 or over) living in a property.
If only one person aged 18 or over lives in your property, we can give you a Single Person Discount to reduce your bill by 25%.
If someone is living temporarily away from home, we may need to decide where their main residence is.
This includes those:
- in hospital
- in a nursing home
- working away
- on holiday

If your circumstances change
You will need to let us know if your circumstances change and you are no longer the only resident in the household liable to pay Council Tax.
You can do this by cancelling your single person discount.
