Council tax reductions for holiday homes

You may get a 50% discount on your council tax if your property is a purpose built holiday home.


You may get a discount if your property is a property used for holiday purposes and which can't be occupied all year because of licensing or planning regulations.

Apply for a discount

You will need to provide information on:

  • your council tax account
  • your name and contact details
  • the property you live in
  • the property you are claiming a reduction for
  • any relevant dates of occupation

You can also call 030 33 33 3005 or visit one of our customer service centres.

What happens next

We aim to deal with applications within 14 days of receiving all of the relevant information. Your account will be updated as soon as a decision is made.

Changes in your circumstances

You should always let us know if your circumstances change for any reason.
