Disabled person discount

You may be entitled to a reduction in your Council Tax if your home has certain features, which are for the well being of any disabled person, who normally lives at your property.

The features must include at least one of the following:

  • A room other than a bathroom, kitchen or toilet which is mainly used by the person with the disability, e.g.
  • A room used to store dialysis equipment
  • An additional bathroom or kitchen
  • Where the resident uses a wheelchair indoors, doorways should be wide enough to allow access to rooms

If you qualify for this relief, your Council Tax will be charged at one Band lower than the actual Band of your property (For example, if your property is assessed as being in Band E, you will be charged at Band D).

For a Band A property you will have your bill reduced by a 1/9th.
