Council tax hardship discount

We have discretionary powers to reduce or remit the amount of council tax payable to such extent as we see fit.

We will consider each application on its merits and apply a reduction in council tax if appropriate.

People wishing to apply for a hardship reduction should apply in writing setting out the reasons why they feel they are entitled to a reduction.

Our current procedure for considering applications for discretionary reduction are contained in the document below:
