Reductions for disabilities

Council Tax reductions for disabled residents

If there is a permanently disabled person living in the dwelling as their main home (not necessarily the council taxpayer) and he/she requires at least one of the following features to meet the needs of their disability, there may be a reduction in the Council Tax payable on the property:

  • A room (other than a bathroom, kitchen or toilet) used mainly by the disabled person to meet their needs
  • An additional bathroom or kitchen adapted for use by the disabled person
  • Space in the dwelling to allow for the use of a wheelchair

If you are entitled to this reduction, the Council Tax will be reduced to that of a property in the valuation band immediately below that shown in the valuation list for your dwelling. A reduction will also apply to properties in band A, which will be the same in cash terms as the reductions for dwellings in bands B, C and D.
