If you have a second home, you can apply for a second home discount of 10%.

You can apply for a discount on your second home if:

  • you own or rent a furnished property
  • the property isn’t where you usually live     

To apply for a discount on your second home, you will need:

This discount applies until 31 March 2025. 

From 1 April 2025, we will remove the 10% discount and apply a 100% Council Tax premium on most second homes. This means that the charge will be double the normal Council Tax rather than 90% of it. Your 2025/26 Council Tax bill will show the increased charge.
