Second homes

Second homes pay 100% Council Tax.

However there is one exception to this. If a person has to be away from their home as a condition of their employment (for example armed forces personnel being posted away from home, either here or abroad) then they may qualify for 50% discount. It also applies to other others workers who can demonstrate to us they satisfy the criteria.

A regular review is carried out on all discounts. If your Council Tax bill tells you that we have awarded a discount, you must tell us straightaway about any change to your circumstances, which may affect your discount.
