There are certain categories of occupied property where the Council Taxpayer may be exempt depending on their personal situation.

Important: it is a criminal offence, under the Fraud Act, to provide a false statement or representation in relation to claiming an exemption for which you could be prosecuted. If you are awarded an exemption you must tell the council tax team of any change of circumstances which affects your entitlement within 21 days of the change occurring. If you fail to do so you may be required to pay a penalty.

You can tell us about any change by email or by post at:

Council tax section,
Civic Offices,
St Nicholas Way,
