Apply for Single Person Discount (SPD)

Your full Council Tax bill is based on at least two adults living in a property. If you are the only person over 18 years old who lives in your home, you may be entitled to a discount of 25 percent.

The best way to apply for a discount, is to open an account with us. Once you have an account, you'll be able to track the progress of your application, and receive e-mail updates along the way.

Checks on households claiming SPD

We are currently carrying out residency checks using data matching technology to validate legitimate SPD claims. Any discounts that are being claimed in error, or fraudulently, will be identified and removed.

If you have received a Single Person Discount review, you are still the only adult over 18 resident in your property, and wish to apply for a continuation of your 25% single person discount. Please complete the form below.

If you don't tell us about a change, you may have to pay a fine of £70.
