Single person's discount

Money off your Council Tax if you live alone

A full Council Tax bill is calculated on the basis that there are at least two people aged 18 or over living in the property. Where only one person over the age of 18 is resident, a 25% discount can be applied. This discount can only apply to your main home and not any second homes.

If you are already receiving a discount and another adult moves into the household, you must notify us within 21 days, clearly stating the date this change took place. 

Single Person Discount Review

The review is being managed on behalf of the council by Capacitygrid. Their contact details are on your review letter.

You may have recently received a review letter about your Council Tax discount from Capacity Grid for being the only adult living in your property. We review Council Tax discounts because sometimes people forget to tell us when the number of adults living at their address changes. This could be:

  • a new partner moving in
  • a new tenant moving in
  • a child turning 18

Completing the review

Use the form below to either:

  • declare that you are still living alone, or
  • tell us that the number of adults living at your address has changed

It will take 10 minutes to complete, and you will need the passcode numbers on your review letter.
