Second and holiday home discount

Second home

Following the Council Tax Amendment Regulations 2016 we no longer offer a discount on second homes from 1 April 2017.

Holiday home

A holiday home is a property used for holiday lets, it is 

  • vacated at certain times or
  • unfit to be used throughout the year.

We may offer a 50% discount if the property is holiday home. This discount does not reduce your water and sewerage charges.
