Discount for 25 Years’ tenure A 50% discount is given by the Association for tenants who have had a plot for 25 years or more. If the tenant has more than one plot which qualifies, the discount is only applied to one of those plots. This will be for the largest plot if the tenant has a medium / small plot and a large plot. Please note: Spouses / partners may inherit the time discount, other family members may not. This discount will cease to be available to tenants achieving their 25 years after 30 September 2022. No new discounts will be given after that date but existing discounts will be unaffected.

Starting with the year 2021-22, in order to claim a discount you must be in receipt of Council Tax Reduction (this does not apply to single occupant discount or student discount) or Universal Credit or any of the six benefits that are being transferred into Universal Credit.
