Council Tax is normally charged on the assumption that two or more people aged 18 or over live in a property. If there is only one adult living there, they can apply for a single occupier discount of 25%.
However, if anyone aged 18 or over is an apprentice or is training under the youth training scheme, and without them there is only one adult living in a property, you may apply for a 25% discount.
If there are only apprentices and trainees at a property there is a 50% discount.

A person is a youth training trainee on a particular day if, on that day he/she is -
If you wish to apply for either of these, please contact the Council on the number below. We will request a letter from your employer or from the organisation that is running the youth training scheme to confirm the above information.
