Discretionary top-up relief

If you are eligible for mandatory relief then you can also apply for discretionary top-up relief to cover all or part of the remaining 20% charge. This is awarded at the discretion of North Norfolk District Council and must be applied for annually.

Top-up relief cannot be backdated into the previous year so it is important to apply for this promptly.
