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.
