Council Tax - discounts for properties

Council Tax Energy Efficiency Discount Scheme

If you use providers approved by us during the period from 1 April 2015 to 31 December 2015, to undertake particular energy efficiency measures, you will be entitled to a one-off discount on Council Tax for the financial year 2015 to 2016.  For the purposes of this Scheme, our approved provider is The Mark Group.

This scheme offers cavity wall and loft insulation measures at a discounted cost to eligible applicants. To qualify for a Council Tax discount the individual's household must be liable for a Council Tax Bill in financial year 2015 to 2016 whether the full year's charge is payable or another council tax discount has been awarded.

There may be an alternative scheme available to those in receipt of 100 per cent exemption from their council tax.

Consequently, this scheme is not available to council tax payers in receipt of 100 per cent exemption.

Furthermore, the Scheme is not open to Council tenants and those eligible to receive free insulation under any Scottish Government or any other free scheme that may exist.
