People with disabilities

You may qualify for a reduction in your Council Tax if you or any member of your household is disabled.

However, your home must contain one or more of the following features:

  • has a room set aside to provide facilities for their use which is mainly used by them due to their disability (N.B. This does not include a downstairs room being used as a bedroom by the disabled person)
  • has a second bathroom or kitchen installed in the property for their use
  • has to use a wheelchair indoors - the disabled person must possess a wheelchair and the use of a wheelchair indoors must be essential or of major importance

If you qualify for a reduction, the amount of Council Tax payable will be based on the band below that which your property is in. For example, if you property is in Band C, you will be charged as if you were in Band B. If your property is in Band A, the Council Tax will be reduced by one sixth.
