7. Discretionary discount

We have a discretionary power to reduce the amount of Council Tax a person is liable to pay by such amount as it thinks is appropriate. This power can be used in relation to individual cases or by determining a class of case in which liability is to be reduced.

Please refer to our Discretionary Discount policy for further details and how to apply.

Customers receiving Council Tax Support or who would be but for changes made to the Council Tax Support Scheme should apply for assistance under the Exceptional Hardship Scheme.
