Apply for a Council Tax disabled reduction

If you have adapted your home to meet the needs of a disabled person who lives there, and he or she is permanently and substantially disabled, we may be able to reduce your Council Tax bill.

To get a disabled reduction the property must have at least one of the following features:

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