Reductions to Council Tax for Disabled People

In certain circumstances, we will reduce the amount of council tax you have to pay if any member of the household is severely and permanently disabled.

In order to qualify for this reduction, the property must have at least one of the following features:

  • a room other than a bathroom, kitchen or toilet which the disabled person uses and needs
  • an extra bathroom or kitchen needed for the disabled person
  • sufficient floor space indoors to allow for use of a wheelchair which is needed by the disabled person.

If you qualify for disability reduction then your bill may be reduced to the band below your current band. If your property is a Band A property you will be charged at a rate equivalent to five ninths of a Band D charge.
