Council Tax discounts

Other help available


If you are on a low income, you could qualify for council tax support.

If you are a tenant you may be able to claim Housing Benefit.

Other reductions 

In some cases, subject to affordability, the Council can reduce the amount of Council Tax that needs to be paid. These are only for cases where an exceptional situation happens which outside the control of the taxpayer and national discounts or exemptions cannot be applied.
