There will be no charge if your property falls into one of these exemption classes.

When the property no longer meets the criteria for the exemption, Council Tax will become payable. See our Council Tax reduction section for details of the possible charges you may face once the exemption ends.

Apply for a Council Tax exemption

To ensure the criteria is met, we'll need to discuss your circumstances with you for the majority of exemptions, however some require an application form to be completed. Contact us at or by calling 01775 761161.

Change in Circumstances

If you qualify for an exemption you must tell us within 21 days if there is a change that might affect it. We can impose a £70 penalty if you do not tell us about a change. Keep us informed of changes on or by calling 01775 761161.
