Council Tax Discount for Granny Flats in Pocklington, Market Weighton and Stamford Bridge


6:37am 23rd January 2014

East Riding of Yorkshire Council is reminding residents that a new Council Tax discount is being introduced by the Government from 1 April 2014. It will be applicable to people living in a property with annexes.  The annexe must either be in use by a resident of the property, or occupied by a relative of the person who pays Council Tax on the property with the annexe.

The discount will apply where the annexe has been separately banded and is classed as a separate dwelling. The Council Tax payer will know if the property has been classed as a separate dwelling, because they will have a Council Tax bill for it.

The discount will reduce the amount of Council Tax payable on the annexe by 50%.

To obtain the discount, the council requires the Council Tax payer to apply for it. Any East Riding Council Tax payer who thinks they may qualify for this discount should contact the Council Tax section as soon as possible, either by email at council.tax@eastriding.gov.uk or by telephone on 01482 394747.
