Night shelters

Anyone who lives in a night shelter is not counted for Council Tax purposes.

A night shelter is accommodation that:

  • is provided for people of no fixed abode or settled way of life

  • who only have a licence to live in it

  • is not self-contained.

This means that the owner of a night shelter may be entitled to a 50 per cent discount and should complete an Icon for pdf Council Tax Discount Claim Form which is also available from the Council Tax office.
